Potomac Highlands

Potomac Highlands RegionCheck out a state map, and you’ll notice a large green swath along the eastern central portion of West Virginia. That’s the Monongahela National Forest – almost a million acres – and much of it is in the Potomac Highlands region. The Allegheny Mountains ripple through this area, making for awesome outdoor adventures and splendid driving tours. These green mountains also shelter a valuable diversity of plants and animals, some of them rare. Against this backdrop, the Potomac Highlands is full-to-bursting with mountain music, fine arts and handcrafts, historical treasures, gracious lodgings and good things to eat.
