Attractions & Things to Do
After your delicious breakfast, check out all of the great activities available in and around Berkeley Springs, WV. West Virginia hot springs and warm mineral waters flowing from the ridge in the center of town have been considered health enhancing since pre-colonial times. Indians soothed arthritic bones; Colonial, Antebellum, and Victorian fashion decreed summering at the spa. Present-day visitors to Berkeley Springs State Park enjoy the historic Roman-style baths and relaxing massages.
Outdoor adventures range from game-spotting walks on mountain trails and golf at a championship public course to hunting, horseback riding, or bicycling along the C&O Canal. History is everywhere, from the self-guided tour of the town’s first owners to Berkeley Castle, a castle built for love. The Museum of the Berkeley Springs displays the town’s history all during the season.
Explore the locally created art, enjoy concerts in the park throughout the summer, a mom-and-pop movie theater, and enjoy entertainment at resorts and clubs that offer cultural events for everyone. The Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting in February, the Uniquely West Virginia Wine and Food Festival in April and the Apple Butter Festival on Columbus Day weekend provide notable memories.
Treasure hunting is a satisfying activity in two antique malls and a sprinkling of specialty shops.
Visitors are attracted to the timeless mountain views dressed in seasonal finery. Enjoy quiet snows in winter, redbud and apple blossoms in spring, lush green forests and wildflowers in summer, and a dazzling palette of colors each fall.
Most of all, it is your gracious hosts and the friendly people of this historic spa town who will bring you back again and again to stay at Highlawn Inn.
