You may remember Fayetteville from November of 2013 when this small river town of nearly 3,000 people took top honors in our Best River Towns Contest. In that contest we acknowledged Fayetteville for its world-renowned whitewater, and paid homage to its status as a year-round river rat retreat.
Thanks to its proximity to both the New River Gorge and the Gauley River, Fayetteville is one of the most sought after whitewater destinations in the country, but it’s also home to climbers, hikers, trail runners, anglers, and mountain bikers. If any of your passions fall into these categories, go ahead and put this town in your ‘must-visit’ column.
Did you know? In addition to being a virtual whitewater mecca, the New River Gorge attracts rock climbers from all over the globe. One look at the Endless Wall, which offers 4.5 miles of unbroken cliff line accessible only by repelling or ladders, and you’ll understand why.
