We stayed at Holiday Inn Express located at Alex Ln, Charleston, WV during the championship of the History Bowl last year. It was a great location since it was near every place that we need to go for the event. The only thing I didn't like is the noise from the busy road but other than that, it was good.
The view from our room window is this bridge. Nothing special but the good thing is, the river is a walking distance and the view by the river is better.
All of us decided to walk to the restaurant where we all dined in and strolled by the river coming back.
I don't know much about Charleston since we have never gone there before. This is a little embarrassing to say considering that it is our state's capital but this was really our first time going there. I am glad, we were able to visit. On the day of our tour, we drove by the river and these are some of the photos I took.
I didn't know about the University of Charleston till last year (in fact, I never heard of it before) so it was interesting to see the campus from across the river.
I definitely need to educate myself about West Virginia, there are so many things I don't about Almost Heaven, WV.
Thanks to our kids who are involve with different kinds of activities in school, we get to go and see places that otherwise we won't go if we its not for specific events.
