Mountaineer Country Welcomes the Big12 Conference

Home of West Virginia University


Make plans to stay for the adrenaline rush here, in Mountaineer Country!

Our steep mountains provide ample runoff to make wicked whitewater. Hundreds of bike trails weave through old-growth forests, then take you to the edge of some spectacular overlooks. Several of the top rope climbs in the east are inside Coopers Rock State Forest, known for stiff grades and gritstone-like rock.

Check out Mountaineer Country’s hidden adventures, get insider tips from local thrill-seekers, plus a complete list of equipment rentals and local guides.

#5. University City Night Life


We know it’s a trek for Big 12 visitors, so we’ve put together a list of can’t miss, local hangouts that have lasted more than 40 years in Mountaineer Country. Each one is worth the visit for an authentic taste of game day in Morgantown!

  • Mario’s Fishbowl, a WVU alumni favorite has 60 years of “reflections” written on receipts, napkins, and business cards that layer the walls; stop by and add yours.
  • Colasante’s Ristorante and Pub is a landmark for locals; the family has shared their love for Italian food and family recipes since 1969.
  • Boston Beanery, a Mountaineer game day tradition with all the charm of a Boston pub.
  • Gene’s Beer Garden, the oldest running bar in Morgantown, opened in 1944.
  • Wings Ole, where “fries and bleu” and crispy wings have been an obsession for WVU students since 1977.
  • Black Bear Burritos; any local will tell you this is where the best “guac and margaritas” can be found, and the owners are WVU alum.
  • Crockett’s Lodge is the go-to for football season where “table surfing” started in Morgantown!
