Sightseeing
With a combination of stunning scenery and adventurous activities, a visit to the Tucker County region is ideal for families and photographers alike. Tucker County is West Virginia's second -least populated county, and with two designated wilderness areas (Dolly Sods and Otter Creek), it offers an idyllic countryside landscape far away from life's frenetic pace. The county has only one traffic light, but is lush with fragrant pine trees and rugged mountain peaks. In the fall, Tucker County's spell-binding foliage makes photographers and Instagrammers swoon.
