Shepherdstown, was the first place I encountered to challenge my narrow view of what towns in West Virginia are supposed to be like.

Nestled against the Appalachian Trail, Shepherdstown is a tiny little explosion of culture and hippy hipsterdome. This is the kind of small town you love to stumble upon and spend a day, week or lifetime in.
Decorated with chic boutiques and 'I could care less' coffeeshops it simulates any city with a scene, but reduces it to a three block radius.

This is my second time here, and I sort of want to see what a season would feel like.

NOTE: Thomas and Wheeling also deserve recognition for their abilities to challenge what towns in West Virginia are supposed to be like.

    Wait, why is that house so small? We'd love to take a visit here! We've also enjoyed downtown Lewisburg, WV!

    Believe it or not, it reminds me of my visits with my grandparents in Summersville, WV. Quaint little hotels, ma and pa grocery stores, etc. I miss those days! Nana Mom
