Make Completely Unexpected Memories in the Heart of West Virginia’s Metro Valley

While we can’t promise a stress-free trip when traveling with children, we can promise our friendly faces and small-town feel will help your family make memories and find fun around every corner. Explore the Bear Wood Fair Trail, get lost in Gritt’s Fall Fun Farm corn maze, or pretend you’re seaside at Waves of Fun. With clean, comfortable lodging and fresh food for every taste, the adults can recover from a day of kid-centric fun.
