"Almost Heaven, West Virginia" Capon Bridge by soccergrrl

Capon Bridge Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 27 photos

Thanks, John Denver, for the words. First, let me say that if you are here looking for tips or recommendations, you won't find any. Sorry. But if you want to see what the West Virginia countryside looks like, c'mon in and have a look around. My parents bought a house outside Capon Bridge quite a number of years ago, and we have used it as a sort of family resort/retreat ever since. It's ideal for relaxing, cavorting, eating, and generally reconnecting and recharging city-frazzled batteries. From the Washington, DC suburbs you can be out here in about 2 hours. On VT, it takes less time than that!

You never know who you're going to run into in West Virginia! Meet Jack and his family, purchased at a wonderful produce market along US Route 50 West (just west of Winchester, VA) and carved at Long View.

Just to prove I was there (if only as a shadow of myself)--late afternoon in the front yard. This little tree was really showing its color.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A great place for relaxing family fun
  • Cons:In the end, you have to go back to home and work
  • In a nutshell:Rolling hills, trees, and wildlife

    I love fall, Dorothy, and West Virginia definately has some of the best back wooded areas for seeing fall colors! Great pictures!

    My favorite trips are to beautiful countrysides like this. We also have a cabin in the mountains to enjoy natural beauty
