Introduction

On the banks of the Monongahela River, Morgantown is best known as the home of West Virginia University. There are 28,400 Mountaineers enrolled at the Morgantown campus, and their presence is felt throughout downtown and the city – especially on home football game weekends! The city is also an outdoorsy adventure town, with cycling and hiking on several rail-trails, rafting on the Cheat River and hiking and rock climbing at nearby state parks and forests. With loads of breweries, craft-beer bars and old-favorite watering holes, it's a fun place to grab a beer after a day outdoors.
