So Much More Than Wild and Wonderful, My Hometown Huntington, West Virginia

While oftentimes portrayed negatively in the media, my state and hometown of Huntington, West Virginia is full of delightful people and great area attractions. You might love it so much that you decide to make it your own hometown (I did just that 10 years ago after a 2500 mile move).

Camden park is a great place for families. Ticket prices are reasonable and there numerous rides and food stands. It still has a great old time feel and hasn't been over commercialized or modernized. A great place of nostalgia for people of all ages!

Heritage Station is a great place for the whole family. Kids will love the authentic locomotive, while adults will find great shopping and places to eat. The layout is open with places to walk around, sit etc. In the summer my kids love to run around on the train and I love that the stores are unique and not chains. Plus it's the site where the city's first bank was once robbed by the Jessie James gang.
