Morgantown, West Virginia is best known as the home of West Virginia University, but this charming small city on the Monongahela River is also famous for its rich history of mining and petroleum, its glassworks, and its scenic downtown. With a Morgantown timeshare, you'll soon feel right at home cheering on college sports teams, boating along the river, and sampling local flavors at its breweries and restaurants.
Morgantown's Main Street is the most popular place to go for dining, drinks, and shopping. As you walk along its sidewalks you'll soon see how the town has gained a reputation as one of the best small cities east of the Mississippi. On Saturday mornings, the Morgantown Farmers’ Market is held downtown and is a great way to pick up fresh fruits and vegetables. If you want to enjoy craft beers during your stay, you can stop by the Morgantown Brewing Company, the oldest operating brewery in West Virginia, or Mountain State Brewing for a wide selection of local craft brews.
So Much Centers On the College
Naturally, West Virginia University is home to several of the town's top attractions. The Art Museum of WVU on the Evansdale Campus features both permanent and traveling art exhibits showcasing modern and historical works of art. If you are a sports fan, then you'll probably want to stay at your Morgantown timeshare to catch a game at the WVU's Coliseum and Milan Puskar Stadium. For spring visitors, a visit to the Earl L. Core Arboretum on campus is a must, as the wildflowers bloom into a riot of color each year. The Arboretum also has a network of hiking trails stretching along the Monongahela River.
For family vacationers, the Children’s Discovery Museum of West Virginia offers kids the chance to explore hands-on exhibits, play with science experiments, and learn STEM skills. During the summer, you won't want to pass up the chance to go boating, paddle boarding, and playing on the water after a stop at the Sunset Beach Marina.
May through July are the busiest months for a Morgantown timeshare. October through February are the slowest months, and the early fall and late spring make up the shoulder season.
