    When Melody and Angie started the book with Tudor’s and later referred to the WV State Museum as the Culture Center, I knew these women were qualified to give advice on visiting my home state of West Virginia.

    100 Things To Do In West Virginia Before You Die is a great, informative read for those looking to visit West Virginia or learn more about their home state. I discovered several places I’ve never heard of before!

    When traveling, I research areas for months and actually make a checklist of everything I want to do ! My checklist includes experiences that include entertainment, recreation , a day or two of history , a fun selfie spot and at the top of my list is finding places to eat that are unique to that area!
    I’m a WV girl who is thankful to see that there is a book that makes it easy for those who want to visit my home state! There are so many restaurants and activities that I’ve realized I have not experienced that are now on my list!
    I’m very thankful that I purchased “100 Things To Do In WV Before You Die.” I don’t even have to make a checklist on places I would like to visit in WV! There are itineraries included in this wonderful book and even activities by season! I can’t wait to get started seeing more of my beautiful state!
    Good job, Melody and Angie! Thank you for sharing your love for our wonderful state of West Virginia!
