Featured in VOGUE: Everything You Need to Know About New River Gorge, America’s 63rd National ParkLocated within an hours drive of The Greenbrier

Some good and green news: America, we have a new national park.

In late 2020, New River Gorge in southern West Virginia was given our country’s premiere preservation status, making it the 63rd natural area of its kind. It’s easy to see why: With 72,000 acres and a 53-mile gorge, it’s been a beloved attraction for outdoor enthusiasts for over half a century now.

If you’re looking for luxury lodging, there’s one place that should be at the top of your list: The Greenbrier. The legendary five-star hotel, affectionately dubbed “America’s resort,” is located under 45 minutes from the park’s Sandstone Visitor Center. The Greenbrier’s interiors are by legendary designer and famous maximalist Dorothy Draper: you can spot hallmarks of her style, from black-and-white tiled floors to cabbage-rose chintz. (Fun fact: the 1948 party to celebrate her renovation of the Greenbrier was attended by Bing Crosby and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.) There’s also much to do on the resort’s 11,000 acre property, from golf, to croquet, to bowling, to falconry.

Although it’s still winter in West Virginia, soon enough, spring will be here, and then the spectacular season of summer. So, if your interest is piqued, start planning for an adventure where surprises are just around the river bend.
