Some of our trees are disrobing in the full color of fall. The vibrant gold, red and orange leaves are quite the sight. If you love the outdoors fall is truly a great time of year to visit. Hiking and biking or even just a casual drive offers picturesque views around each turn. It's almost too much to take in all at once. That's why there are also many areas where you can just sit down and reflect and let nature offer you scenery as you do so. The colorful leaves slowly making their way to the ground is somehow comforting to watch.
The Apple Butter Festival which takes place every Columbus Day weekend in Berkeley Springs has past and so we have plenty of Apple Butter to spread on our toast. We recommend raisin bread. On a beautiful fall morning there is nothing better with coffee.
Fall reminds you that you have almost made it through another year and yet another is on the way. Steadily time is marching on in a most pictorial way in Morgan County. That is why we have so many artists and craftsmen who are inspired by the vivid colors and dramatic landscapes. Each day brings more photographs taken by visitors and residents of the nature that surrounds us. The wildlife in the area is yet another pleasant view. Deer stroll through the countryside with their young hopping along behind them as they make their way to wherever deer travel to.
Many are drawn to Morgan County because there are so many outdoor activities. For both guests and locals, camping and fishing along the river banks is a favorite past time. The campgrounds even sponsor musical events featuring local talent. Others come here to retire and settle into a slower pace amongst the quaint architecture and charming shops that offer relics of the past. If you love antiques, there is no shortage of them here.
For those that enjoy an uncomplicated retreat we have resorts with golf, swimming, massage therapy, spas and fine dining all nestled in the striking countryside and with a full-service staff. There are also many bed and breakfast stays available in the area if you're just passing through. We also have a local brewery offer brews made with our award-winning water. The water is what most visitors come here to experience. Whether it is to play in the water or to soak in the naturally warm mineral springs of the Berkeley Springs State Park or to taste the water from the water-tasting competition; water is our best natural resource.
Mark a day on your calendar to come and visit. There's is always plenty to do in our area and a welcome sign on our doors in Morgan County.Date Published: 10/28/2015
