West Virginia is located at the Appalachian, Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern regions of the United States. Nicknamed the "Mountain State", West Virginia is the only state completely within the Appalachian Mountain region, with an elevation higher than any state east of the Mississippi River.

The state is historically a hotbed for coal mining and logging industries. It also has some of the east coast's most beautiful and rugged scenery. Subsequently, it is widely known for its wide range of outdoor recreational activities, such as backpacking, fishing, mountain biking, hiking, hunting, rock climbing, skiing, white water rafting, etc. Adventurers and nature lovers will never run out of fun things to do in this state.

One of the most iconic places to see in West Virginia is the New River Gorge National River. It is said to be one of the oldest rivers in the continent. It cuts through the Appalachian Plateau and makes plenty of canoeing, tubing, and white water rafting opportunities.

Rugged land, limited farm size lands, and lack of flat land hampered the development, commercial expansion, and competitive advantage of this state.
