People live and die by football in West Virginia. This weekend, after a full slate of high school games on Friday, there won’t be Mountaineer football to look forward to on Saturday.
The WVU football team is beloved by almost all of the 1.8 million citizens in the state of West Virginia. There are, of course, some Marshall fans in the southern part of the state, but for the most part West Virginia is covered in blue and gold.
West Virginia is also a state covered in natural beauty. Because there is not a WVU football game this weekend, many people won’t know what to do with themselves. Sitting inside and staring at the television isn’t going to magically make the Mountaineers come on at any point of the day.
Also, unfortunately, traveling to Morgantown and standing outside of Milan Puskar Stadium won’t make the WVU Marching Band play in front of 60,000 screaming fans. The stadium, in fact, will be completely empty.
After four games and three victories, the WVU football team has earned a break. The fans have, too. So, enjoy this bye week and go outside and check out some of the most beautiful scenery in all of the United States. West Virginia is also Almost Heaven, after all.
The Mountain State is full of fun activities the whole family can enjoy. Here are five selections of things to do on a West Virginia bye week.
