The town of Mannington, West Virginia, is located in the Mountaineer Country Region of West Virginia, and is near a bounty of wonderful attractions for our guests to enjoy. Beneath the misty moon or under stadium lights, Mountaineer Country is a vibrant region that knows how to have – and share – a rollicking good time. If you visit here, you’ll also find natural splendor to spare and a deep respect for heritage and diverse ethnic traditions. A wealth of woods, lakes, streams and trails makes for great hunting, boating, fishing, swimming, hiking and biking in this region.
Hard work, high hopes and civic pride have paid off handsomely in Morgantown, the region’s hub. Rated the Best Small City East of the Mississippi by Prometheus Books, Morgantown revolves around West Virginia University. The university’s Creative Arts Center, museums and arboretum all invite visitors – and fans by the thousands cheer at Mountaineer football games. Morgantown’s zest for the good life is evident in the flurry of development beside the Monongahela River, where the Wharf District is alive with shops, restaurants and galleries. Cyclists, ‘bladers and walkers populate the paved Caperton Trail, while others see the sights on guided river excursions.
