Thank you to everyone that replied-I'm really looking forward to visiting next summer! Looks like a beautiful state. I'm excited to get a "feel" of the state and see it in person. While it may take a bit to settle on a specific area/city, the state sounds great to me.

Lived in Martinsburg, in the eastern panhandle, for a few years. That is definitely a growing area. Used to have an indoor mall, now pad stores/restaurants. Easy access up/down the interstate to Winchester VA, Hagerstown MD and Chambersburg PA. Access to DC either by Mark train or metro over in Silver Springs MD. Problem is population on increase, as is traffic, crime and COL. Still a good amount of stores/entertainment in area.

Personally, I like Martinsburg. But I'm not sure if it's what the OP is looking for. I think he wants somewhere more mountainous, and less populated.

I love Martinsburg also and have lived here almost my entire life. But I would not recommend it to someone who has never been to WV before. You might as well go anywhere in the DC/Balti metro at that point.

My favorite spots are the Potomac Highlands, particularly Tucker County. Also, Fayetteville and the New River Gorge.
