Next week my husband and I are hitting the road to visit friends in Lexington, KY. Once we get there, they are going to take us around to see the sights and check out the bourbon trail. We have planned an extra day at the beginning (6/28) and and extra day at the end (7/2 or 7/3) to take our time and explore the southern part of WV.
Currently we're planning to camp one night at the New River Gorge National Park. We may stop in Beckley to see the exhibition coal mine, and we'll probably check out The Mystery Hole.
I'm looking for suggestions for stops along I 64 in WV or in KY before Lexington. I'm open to anything that you consider a must-see, non-chain or regional chain restaurants, curiosities, parks, natural wonders or anything that you believe would be worth getting off the highway for.
