All Northern Panhandle

Hugging the Ohio River, this area of the Northern Panhandle remembers its history: The ancient Adena people who built a conical mound more than 2,000 years ago; the pioneer families and adventures making their way west along the National Road; the boom that spawned extravagant Victorian homes in Wheeling and Sistersville. Today, that history melds with the new Northern Panhandle, as exciting as those days long past, but now filled with the pleasures of today; great country music, wonderful family resorts and parks, outdoor adventure on the rivers, arts and culture, gracious dining and accommodations.
