Morgantown Travel Guide
Welcome to Morgantown, WV!
Situated a mere 10 mi (16 km) from the West Virginia-Pennsylvania border, Morgantown is central to a number of attractions in Northern West Virginia. Home to West Virginia University and found along the Monongahela River, Morgantown is able to support year-round activities for a gamut of interests, including sport, theater and outdoor adventures. From the late 1800s into the early 1980s, this area supported a thriving glass-making industry, which continues to be visible today at the Morgantown Glass Museum, the historic Seneca Center (one of 14 former glass factories in the area) and the Riverfront Museum. Green spaces are found at the Coopers Rock State Forest, the Core Arboretum, Cheat Lake and at dozens of parks and golf courses. Morgantown's location is also ideal for sightseeing drives, especially during the fall when the foliage decorates the area in a multitude of colors.
