I also lived in Huntington, WV for a few years, but nothing compares to Morgantown. For a small WV town, the diversity is wonderful. The college is definitely a big part of this town. The hills are beautiful and there are many outdoor activities you can enjoy either in town or within just a short drive from town. Many outdoor enthusiasts love it here, whether they be bikers, kayakers, hikers, campers, etc, etc.. The music scene is pretty good, too. Check out Morgantown. You`ll like it.
