The State Of West Virginia, USA - Unravel Travel TV
The scenic rural state of West Virginia with its abundance of natural resources provides a perfect backdrop for a true American adventure holiday. Driving tours lead to quaint B&Bs and renowned warm hospitality, breathtaking landscapes carve routes for mountain biking, motorbike journeys and RVs exploring state parks. The camouflaged tracks of the many hiking trails and fishing areas display the natural beauty while championship golf courses, ski runs and white water rafting offer seasonal sporting activities.
Offering unique Appalachian culture, John Denver's ballad adequately describes its state's country roads, dramatic scenery at every turn and the spectacular kaleidoscope of colour in the Autumn. It is a state which is 80% forested, with 7 state forests, 36 state parks and 200,000 acres of protected woodland parks interlaced by 2,000 miles of rivers and streams. Accommodation ranges from log cabins, motels, guest houses to the historical Greenbrier Resort, favoured by Presidents.
West Virginia boasts seven wonders of the natural world, from beaches, waterfalls, high plains plateau to river and mountain trails, rock formations and gorges. There are several lake beaches offering swimming and boating in lush green settings. The 2,700-acre Summersville Lake and 1,500-acre Sutton Lake are great for mountain biking and hiking trails. Walkers can follow the Gentle Trail at Blackwater Falls State Park for a great view of the state's largest waterfall at 63-feet and one of its most photographed spots. Named for its amber-coloured water, the falls spill into the Blackwater Canyon and great for hiking and biking.
The New River Gorge is the perfect landscape for rafting, rock climbing, hiking and mountain biking along one of the world's oldest and scenic white water rivers. The second-tallest bridge, the New River Gorge Bridge is close by. A visit here can be elevated by taking a walk on this 876-foot-highNew River Gorge Bridge catwalk for stunning views of the gorge from one of the top ten steel structures in the world.
Dolly Sods is a 4,000-foot high plains plateau in the Monongahela National Forest. Here blueberries and huckleberries can be picked and where mountain laurel and other flora bloom. Hike or ride horses along the trails near West Virginia's highest point, Spruce Knob. From its observation tower at 4,863feet, there are great views.
Walk the moderate Seneca Rocks Trail up to the summit for amazing scenery atop the 900foot rock formation overlooking the confluence of Seneca Creek and the North Fork South Branch Potomac River. The Seneca Rocks National Recreation Area offers world-class climbing, mountain biking and hiking. Or for a more relaxed pass-time, there's fishing for bass or trout at one of the state's many fishing hot spots: Williams River, Cranberry River, Cherry River, Cheat River, Birch River and Beech Fork Lake.
West Virginia is convenient to reach from Washington Dulles Airport, being just over one hour's drive to its eastern panhandle where Harpers Ferry National Historical Park is located, the heart of civil war history in this state, when back in1863, West Virginia became the 35th State in the Union, the only state born out of the Civil War and today celebrates its culture, beauty and independence.

Which U.S. state has about the same population figures as Austria? Find out in the latest addition to our state video series: Judy Friedberg from the Management Section presents her home state. #50states #VA
Hi, I'm Judy Friedberg and I am happy to tell you about my home state of Virginia.
Officially known as the Commonwealth of Virginia, this mid-Atlantic state is
bordered by Washington, DC, Maryland, West Virginia and North Carolina. And,
to the East, the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean border Virginia's Eastern
Shore, another peninsula of Virginia land.
More than eight million people live in Virginia. Our state flower is actually a
flowering tree -- the dogwood. Our state bird is the cardinal.
Much of our state's natural beauty is protected by National Parks. My favorite is
Great Falls Park which highlights a rushing section of the Potomac River, which
flows to the Bay from the mountains in the west. Those mountains are also known
as The Blue Ridge Mountains, due to the coloring of the trees and shadows,
particularly in the early morning and early evening light.
Much of this area is included in Shenandoah National Park. Within the park is a
portion of the beautiful Appalachian Trail -- a rigorous hiking trail which extends
from Georgia to Maine. In the autumn, the leaves are at their most colorful.
Skyline Drive runs through the park. This is a fantastic way to see the beauty of the
mountains and the Shenandoah Valley from the comfort of your car.
The Shenandoah Valley is known for dairy farms and wineries. Virginia's farming
history also includes tobacco and cotton.
Virginia's nicknames refer to its rich history. The Old Dominion refers to its status
as one of the original 13 colonies. Virginia's other nickname is The Mother of
Presidents. Eight U.S. presidents were born here - more than any other state.
Some of their homes are open to the public as historic sites.
Mount Vernon, home of our first President, George Washington, sits high on a bluff
overlooking the Potomac River, not far from Washington, DC.
Monticello, home of our third President and drafter of our Declaration of
Independence, Thomas Jefferson, is located in Charlottesville, Virginia. The
University of Virginia, which Jefferson founded, is nearby.
But, back to some much earlier history...Native people, including the Powhatan,
Algonquin, and Iroquois, were already living in the area long before the English
settlers came. Some say the name Virginia was the settlers' way of honoring Queen
Elizabeth the First of England, who was also known as The Virgin Queen.
You may have heard of the story of Pocahontas? She was a native of the area and a
friend to the English settlers of the colony's first capitol, Jamestown, in 1616.
Williamsburg served as the capitol of the Colony of Virginia from the early 1700s
and was the center of political activity leading to the American Revolution.
Both Jamestown and Williamsburg have active historic centers where you can learn
more about colonial life.
Richmond became the state capital in 1780 and remains so today. In 1861, after ten
states seceded from the United States, Richmond became the capital of the shortlived
Confederate States of America.
After the Civil War ended, and these states re-entered the Union, Richmond
developed into a railroad crossroads for the region. These strong railroads helped
develop trade routes between the middle of the country and the Atlantic Ocean and
led to the founding of Newport News Shipbuilding which continues to produce
battleships and aircraft carriers. Nearby Hampton Roads is the largest naval base on
the east coast.
Virginia is also home to the world's largest office building, The Pentagon,
headquarters of the Defense Department.
Other Virginia coastal attractions are historic lighthouses including Cape Henry,
Fort Monroe and Assateague. Assateague is also the home of the Chincoteague wild
ponies. And, if you visit there perhaps you will order some delicious Chesapeake
Bay blue crab and a beer for your dinner.
Today, media, technology, software, communications, and consulting are the fastest growing sectors of Virginia's economy. The education sector, particularly Virginia's
200-plus colleges and universities, and the government employment sector are also
growth areas. All of this and more, make Virginia the wealthiest of the southern
I hope you enjoyed hearing about Virginia today.
Lake Tahoe Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia (4K)
Filled with over 39 trillion gallons of pure Sierra snowmelt and pushed a mile into the Californian and Nevada skies, Lake Tahoe is the USA’s largest alpine lake and one of the country’s oldest, year-round vacation playgrounds.
Lake Tahoe has forever drawn travellers to its shores, from the Native Americans who call this place Big Water, to the trappers, timber cutters and pioneers who followed.
When you’re ready for a little alpine magic, take the four-hour drive from San Francisco to the sunlit shores of Kings Beach. Set on Tahoe’s northern end, this beach was named after local card shark, Joe King, who used his winnings to develop some of the lake’s earliest lodgings. On the lake’s southern shore, is Pope Beach, where you’ll find another Tahoe institution, Camp Richardson.
From Pope Beach follow the bike path to the Taylor Creek Visitor Center. An open-air classroom for the entire family, the center features fabulous interpretative walks such as the Rainbow Trail.
Nearby, at DL Bliss State Park, follow the spectacular Rubicon Trail into neighboring Emerald Bay State Park. This park is home to the Eagle Falls Trail, a moderate two-mile hike that takes in some of the Sierra high country’s finest views.
When the ponderosa pines bend with the season’s first snow, Tahoe transforms into the nation’s favorite winter playground. Whether you’re looking for snow-capped peaks or crystal clear coves, places to bond with loved ones or pockets of pure solitude, The Lake in the Sky has it all.

This state has dramatic landscapes including the deepest lake in the U.S., is the only state with an official nut, and is NOT the rainiest, wettest place in America. Learn more from this video in which Nathan Cooper, Assistant Public Affairs Officer at the U.S. Mission to International Organizations in Vienna, introduces his home state: Oregon. #50states #OR
Hello! My name is Nathan Cooper, I work at the U.S. Mission to International Organizations in Vienna, and I come from the beautiful state of Oregon. It's a state with majestic natural resources and a fiercely independent character.
Before I talk a bit more extensively about the state's history and culture, let me quickly dispel three common misconceptions about my home state: First, many people often guess Oregon is somewhere in the middle of the country. Actually, Oregon is on the West Coast of the United States, just above California.
Second, although you may have heard it called Or-ee-GONE, locals pronounce it ORE-gun.
And last, contrary to what weather maps often depict, Oregon is not the wettest, rainiest place in America (that's actually in Hawaii).
Oregon is perhaps most famous for its dramatic and diverse landscape. Its rugged coastline contains sprawling beaches and a fascinating array of marine life, including noisy sea lions and vibrant tide pools.
The Western half of the state is dominated by the volcanic Cascade mountain range. There you'll find famous peaks like Mt. Hood, dense evergreen forests and rushing rivers. The western Willamette Valley is also home to the state's two largescities, Portland and Eugene, as well as a world-class winemaking region. And a vashigh-elevation desert covers the eastern half of the state.
Southern Oregon's Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the US. It was formed by a collapsed volcano in the Cascades. These kinds of natural resources have attracted explorers and adventurers to Oregon since its earliest days.
Archeologists have found evidence of human settlements in what is now know as Oregon dating back at least 15,000 years. Large numbers of Native American groups, including the Umpqua, Molalla, Klamath, and Chinook called area home in the 1500s when Spanish explorers first encountered the Oregon coast in 1543.
Centuries later, President Thomas Jefferson commissioned explorers Lewis and Clark to cross the continent in search of a commercial route for trade with Asia. In 1806 they reached what is now known as Oregon. Lewis and Clark's successful continental crossing lead to Oregon joining the Union in 1859. They're still considered Oregon's forefathers.
OK, that's probably enough of a history lesson. Now for a bit of trivia: In no particular order, here are a few other things you might find surprising about Oregon: It's the only state with an official nut—the hazelnut, which is also sometimes called a filbert. It's the home of Nike. The global capital of wind surfing is Hood River, Oregon, on the banks of the Columba River. Oregon has more ghost towns than anywhere else in the former Wild West. Oregon also has some strangely-named communities. My favorites include the towns of Weed, Drain, Nimrod, and Boring. Oregon is physically the 7th largest American state, but ranks only 29 in terms of population.
Politically, Oregon is both extremely independent and strongly polarized. Oregonians
pioneered direct legislation by the state's citizens through ballot initiatives and referenda,
a system now used throughout the nation. This democratic device allowed Oregonians
to go against the national grain with policies like banning self-pumping at gas stations
and doing away with sales taxes. Oregon's independent streak comes through clearly in
the state's motto: She flies with her own wings.
Consensus among citizens in Oregon is hard to come by, as recent studies have shown
Oregonians to represent some of the most extremely liberal and conservative voters in
Although Oregonians are generally a pretty low-key bunch, more than a few famous
people have come from state, including President Herbert Hoover; the actors Sally
Struthers, Kim Novak, and Ginger Rogers; the track star Steve Prefontaine; and the
writers Ken Kesey and Raymond Carver.

hope you'll have the chance to visit it one day.
