Looking to get away with your significant other? Search no further than Canaan Valley, West Virginia, a beautiful destination year-round. Known for its scenic views, wildlife and outdoor activities, Canaan Valley is perfect for a couples retreat. Plan your most romantic vacation yet by following our guide to exploring Canaan Valley.

Outdoor Activities

Get some fresh air by surprising your significant other with the opportunity to go horseback riding. Expertise is not needed to take in the peaceful views of the surrounding mountains and forestry while on the riding trails. If you’d rather, hike or bike the many trails throughout Canaan Valley that offer privacy and alone time instead.

Do you and your loved one enjoy taking adventures? Canaan Valley has whitewater rafting and ziplining opportunities to have some fun together. If it’s too cold to do either of those activities, skiing, tubing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, and sled riding may be better options to try. The National Wildlife Refuge offers some of these services as well as other activities such as a visitors’ center with attractions inside.

If planning a trip in the Fall, have some fun by attending the Leaf Peeper Festival to appreciate the leaf foliage that change into red, orange and yellow colors. Inflatable rides, a car show, live music, a parade, competitions, a 5K, and other events will be included in the Festival as well.

Scenic Attractions

Canaan Valley has beautiful scenic views perfect for a proposal or just to experience as a couple. Blackwater Falls, located in the Alleghany Mountains, is one of the most photographed destinations in the state of West Virginia. Trails to multiple vantage points are all along the falls, but also has a viewing platform to get a closer look. Take a tour through Smoke Hole Caverns, known for its unique mineral formations and rare crystal cave coral pool. Visit Seneca Rocks, a 900-foot pillar that is popular among rock climbers. If rock climbing is not for you and your loved one, Seneca Rocks is still a must see. All of these attractions are sure to be memorable for you both as a couple.
