What people are saying about Morgantown…

  • My family and I had the pleasure to visit your beautiful town in November 2000. We spent 2 weeks visiting Morgantown and surrounding areas. I have a cousin that lives in Morgantown, her and I had corresponded since we were 15 years old but until last year had never met. It was a fantastic experience.
  • I lived in Morgantown from September 1996 to July 1999 and loved every minute of it. I still try to get back to the area about once a year. I made some great memories there and it feels like home to me. I spent many nights on High Street in the local establishments and made several trips up to Pittsburgh during my tenure. Morgantown will always hold a special place in my heart. I still miss it.
  • I plan to visit Morgantown in June or July this year. Looking forward to seeing all the sites and any actively going on.
  • We love living in Morgantown!
  • Graduated WVU in 1995. Far from the town,I miss a lot of things.In my first year I was in Towers. Next year in an apartment somewhere near sunnyside. Rest of years,I was living in an apartment on Forest Ave. But The thing I'm missing most is a guy in Den! Is he still there?
  • Morgantown is a beautiful city. I have been a visitor on many occasions. I love the downtown area and the highlight was a canoe trip on the Monongahela River.
