Explore the Hatfield McCoy Country Museum
Mingo County has a new museum!  Open May through September, Tuesday -Saturday from 9am to 5pm, you can explore local coal mining history, see artifacts from the infamous Hatfield McCoy Feud, and much more!  

Ride the Trails​  West Virginia is known for her hills and mountains, so what better way to experience them, but on 4 muddy wheels. Bring your ATV, UTV, or dirt bike to the Buffalo Mountain Trial system for the ride of your life. www.trailsheaven.com



Find some Moonshine   We can tell you that it's legal in Gilbert, WV. We can also tell you that you'll find it many places....not so legal. But, no trip to the Tug Valley is complete without a sip of white lightning. 


Check out Matewan     The entire town of Matewan is on the National Historic Register. Not only home to the Hatfields and McCoys, Matewan is also home to the Matewan Massacre and the WV Mine Wars Museum. It's definitely worth the stop! www.historicmatewan.com


Do your Homework       Do yourself a favor and watch the History Channel's Hatfields & McCoys starring Kevin Costner. Not only will you be highly entertained for six hours, but you will enjoy your experience to the feuding grounds 10x more! You can also purchase various books on the Hatfields & McCoys when you arrive.
