How we define “attractions”

Members of the West Virginia Explorer development team thought long about how they might organize the resources we’ve come to call attractions. “Attractions” seemed to best define the resources for those of us who are beguiled by the state. Keep in mind that many attractions so-labelled are undeveloped, and their access may not be as easily managed as would be in the traditional sense.
