This list highlights some of the other areas of Raleigh County that you should check out.
Exhibition Coal Mine– This is an actual old working underground coal mine in the middle of Beckley that showcases the mining process from years gone by. Locals love it because many of them had family that worked in similar mines. You’ll learn just how hard mining was before some of the automation that is available today.
Glade Creek- There’s a great recreation area at the mouth of Glade Creek where it meets the New River. This area has boat ramp, toilet facilities, and a first-come, first-serve camping area. There is a hiking trail that borders Glade Creek going upstream from the recreation area. The bottom 3.5 miles of the creek are catch and release fishing spots for trout.

The Char– One of Beckley’s finest restaurants since 1965, locals love The Char’s relaxed atmosphere and great food.
