Saw this link on an MTBR forum... Men's Journal has ranked Davis WVA as one of the 10 coolest mountain towns in North America - along with (get this): Whistler, Telluride, Lake Placid, South Lake Tahoe, North Conway, Valdez, and Park City. Certainly, MJ stiffed a few notables to stuff Davis into their list like say Steamboat Springs, Stowe, Ketchum, Silverton, Durango, Jackson, er a list that can go on and on. Don't get me wrong, I like Davis a lot. But it ain't no Telluride, Conway, Ketchum or Steamboat. Trouble is I can't figure out who paid them off, could Sen. Byrd be at work in the background???

Tell me you wouldn't toss your job to live there and enjoy the good life!!!! Then again if you're going to do that, can you say "Park City"!!!!! I agree, I smell the Sentors involvement.

Don't worry fellers, if Sen. Byrd was involved, Everybody'd know it; i'm just curious how they found davis wv in the first place. They're right tho, Davis, and Thomas for that matter, is a cool little town.

Was thinking about driving up and staying a night. Does anyone know of a place to stay near Canaan? I check Travelocity in Davis but got no bites. Looking for a cheap/clean one nighter.

I would think you could get a room at the lodge at either Blackwater Falls or Canaan Valley State Park; otherwise, Bright Morning Inn is nice (right in "Downtown" Davis). The Meyer House B&B (owned by DCSki board member "jonjon") is also in Davis - haven't stayed there myself. You might also try the Fiddler's Roost B&B in Thomas (about 3 miles north of Davis - it's owned by the folks who run the Purple Fiddle. Can't vouch for it though, but the Fiddle is probably the coolest mountain cafe/coffee shop/bar east of the Rockies (sorry, could not resist), so I think it's worth trying out - you need to like hippies though. You can google to get phone numbers for all of these places.
