Where to Stay

Hotel Morgan

An iconic part of Morgantown history since 1925 – connecting guests to the downtown and West Virginia University. The property was completely renovated in 2020, combining historic splendor and contemporary accommodations.


Mountaineer Roasting Company

A standalone roastery and café that specializes in perfectly crafted beans and brews. That should be enough to get you to take some beans with you. Serving breakfast and lunch.


The Art Museum of WVU

Small but well-curated exhibits from around the world rotate regularly. A sculpture garden on the grounds–and 400 works of art–make it worth the visit. Free Admission.


Public Art Tour

Three tours encompass 37 pieces of art, including murals, statues (from Don Knotts to Jerry West), and libraries. Each tour is outlined in the Public Arts Guide, available at


Von Blaze

Located in the heart of Downtown Morgantown, family-owned Von Blaze creates classic sandwiches with a modern touch, rich soups, fresh salads and “sophisticated drunk food,” all served in a reinvented nostalgic local space.

Bonus Day Trip


This is the best of West Virginia’s handcrafts, fine art, and regional cuisine. Only West Virginia residents can place any products in the showcase; all are juried. Working studios for resident artisans and a fine art gallery make this destination bucket-worthy.
