Wheeling Heritage Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Wheeling, West Virginia, has a little bit of everything: gambling, culture, sports activities, shopping, and more. It calls itself the Friendly City—as opposed to Rude Town, which could be any number of places—and is manageable to navigate, despite the plethora of activities. If you go during the holiday season (Thanksgiving to New Year’s) you are treated to a Christmas light show of dazzling proportions put on by both the city and Oglebay Resort and Conference Center.

A candy cane wreath, dinosaur den, polyhedron star, and more brilliant works of art should bring a smile to even the most insurgent Scrooges. About 12 miles south of Wheeling is Moundsville with a toy museum, Grave Creek Mound Historic Site and other attractions. This eTrail from the DayTrips series describes many fascinating, exciting, (and many free of charge) things to do, most within a two-hour drive of Columbus. Each Day Trip includes destination highlights, places to visit along the way, choice restaurants and lodging, and shopping."

"The Wheeling Heritage Trails running on the former Baltimore & Ohio line are known locally as two trails that connect in downtown Wheeling: the Ohio River Trail and the Wheeling Creek Trail. The route is flat and paved, and beautiful signs along the way provide a self-guided tour of Wheeling’s past.

The Ohio River Trail segment runs 11 miles from 48th Street at Water Street in South Wheeling north to Pike Island Locks and Dam in Clearview. The route provides an urban escape and an opportunity to soak up local history and modern industry in this historical city."
