Luxurious adventures are a great way to tick off the things on your bucket list. But did you know you don’t have to travel around the globe just to do them? West Virginia is a great place with dream vacations, extreme thrills and athletic endeavors where you can check off some of the contents of your bucket list. What’s also amazing? We at Pederson Travel Services in Watertown, South Dakota can plan your trip there for you. While there, you can do any of the following.
· Climb the Via Ferrata
If you’re scared of heights, this one is not for you. The Via Ferrata offers more than 1 mile of fixed-anchor guided climbing, with more than 1000 feet of elevation gain. You also get 285 feet of exposure and a 150 feet high suspension bridge that is 220 feet long!
· Walk Across A 900-Foot Canyon
This bridge walk is a must-do for adventure seekers and engineers. You will get an up-close view of the New River Gorge Bridge while walking the catwalk underneath. The New River Gorge Bridge is a single-span, steel-arch that is a thing of wonder for many.
· Indulge in World-Famous Luxury
There are lots of luxurious suites, a casino and a world-class golf course to be enjoyed. You’ll even find a relaxing mineral spa!
· Walk on Millionaire Row
This place, also known as Millionaires Town was once a booming coal city and its magnificent mansions remain intact today. Bramwell as the town is also called is a place rich in character and history.
· Ride the Rails
Enjoy views of the entire landscape of the West Virginia mountains by taking a train car. You’ll also see wildlife, forests, and gorgeous waterfalls on your trip.
· Stomp Grapes Through Your Toes
Yes, you read that right! This age-old harvest time tradition is fun for everyone. How many people will be able to boast of having done this? Don’t also forget to taste Kirkwood Winery’s mountain wines.
· Swim in A Hot Spring
Soak in the famous hot and natural mineral waters at Berkeley Springs. It will soothe, relax and rejuvenate your body and you can also finally cross hot springs off your bucket list!
· Rock Climbing
Seneca is a great place to get wilderness climbing experience if you’re looking for multi-pitch technical routes. Your strength and endurance will certainly be tested on your way to the top.
· Jump Off the New River Gorge Bridge
It’s about 896 feet with 3 seconds of freefall. There are only 10 spots available each year at Bridge Day so it is a rarity.
· Yoga on The Canyon Rim
How many people can claim to have done yoga on the canyon rim? Not many, but you’ll be able to when you meet at the New River Gorge on a Sunday morning for outdoor practice overlooking the gorge. It’s a great way to restore your body and soothe your soul.
