Actually, they should be there now...
What (if anything) should they watch out for?
What recreational/cultural opportunities are there in the area?

Recreational and cultural opportunities....are you serious? You do know you are moving to WV right....there are none. If you are moving in downtown Huntington watch out for the shootings and stabbings, there was six people shot yesterday. Also watch out for the Prestera clients walking the streets of Huntington they are otherwise known as the crazies, and they put them out in the streets during the day. lol cultural and recreational opportunities, that's a good one man. There is a reason most people in WV are overweight you know....there is nothing to do to bother getting off the couch for.

Huntington is a great place to live. There are many different recreational and cultural opportunities throughout the year. For outdoor recreation, you have many great parks systems just a short drive away in West Virginia, Kentucky and Ohio. You can go caving, hiking, boating, skiing and just about anything else you could think of. For cultural opportunities, you have the yearly international festival at Marshall, several local cultural festivals as well as various touring shows, etc. Not to mention that we have the biggest and best Art Museum in the state and our own local symphony.

For areas to be careful of, as mentioned above, bad things occasionally happen here but thankfully they are rare and focused in a couple of areas around government housing. Otherwise, the entire area is good. I've lived in the suburbs and currently live in city limits so I speak from experience. Here's a short video that you might find useful. Hope this helps.
