What people are saying about Morgantown…

  • Morgantown was great. We`ll be back!
  • Although I`ve lived in northern California for the past 23 years I was born & raised in Morgantown and still miss it! The town just keeps getting better. Now when I start getting homesick I can come here - a really good web site & great photos
  • OK, I was ecstatic to see a Morgantown website. Back in August of 2000, my family was driving along the highway outside of your city when our transmission went out in our van, after being nearly hit by an on-coming semi-truck, we were towed back to your town and we ended up staying in your Holiday Inn. It was very nice. We still joke about our improptu vacation in Morgantown West Virginia. It's a memory I'm not soon to forget.
  • I used to live in Morgantown, WV, and I still visit it every summer. It is a very nice place to spend a lot of your time. It is a very beautiful place!! This website is very nice. Job well done.
