The New River Gorge Bridge area is a marvel to look at and provides breathtaking views nearly 1000 feet in the air. Marvel at the architectural feat that stands taller than Seattle’s Space Needle, St. Louis’ Gateway Arch and Egypt’s Pyramid of Giza!
Live music and food trucks will keep you entertained and your belly full. Eat and shop at a variety of local businesses while enjoying that WV welcoming spirit along the way.
Don’t miss the inaugural Bridge Ride! We’re honored to have the WV Gold Star Mothers assisting with this event to benefit WV Veterans. Beautiful fall scenery in a unique location will make this an annual event you won’t want to miss!
