The Greenbrier

If you want to visit an area that’s beautiful and has historic value, you should visit The Greenbrier, the most famous hotel in Wed Virginia.  The Greenbrier open in 1778 and the hotel has seen an array of distinguished guests in the two centuries that it has been open.  Presidents, movie stars, and wealthy businessmen have all stayed in the hotel’s hallowed halls, but this hotel may be more famous because of its ties to times of war.  The Greenbrier functioned as a military hospital during both the Civil War and World War Two, and it was also an emergency bunker during the Cold War.

National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Green Bank

West Virginia is home to one of the most important observatories in the country.  The National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Green Bank is the largest fully-steerable radio telescope on Earth. This observatory has played a key role in some major astrological discoveries, and it’s open to the public for tours.  Since the facility is so large guests can expect to not be participating in a typical building tour; All NRAO tours take place on a bus so that visitors can see the entire facility.
