West Liberty Things to Do

  • Visit the new library

    If you need quick internet access then head over to the brand new library. My mom still has dial-up (gasp) so I came here to do some school work. Very nice, big, friendly staff, and there was a nice play area for kids.

  • Old Mill Park

    When I was young this place was just two small hills, green grass, and a dirt trail to walk on. But Old Mill Park has really become a beautiful little park over the years! They have built a gazebo between the two small hills and have placed grills and picnic tables in the area. They also black-topped the original walking trail and created another....

  • Treadway Memorial Park

    A lady donated her land to create this park. I didn't even know it was called Treadway Park, I always called it the Veterens Park. When you see it you'll know why...it has a big army tank and the flags of all the armed services.

West Liberty Restaurants

  • Freezer Fresh Dairy

    As you can probably tell by my other pages, I am nuts about Frosty Freezes. This one was one of the first that I ever went to and whenever I go through West Liberty on my way to visit my dad I always stop and visit it. They have really great onion rings, as well as good french fries and peanut butter milkshakes. On my last visit I had a...

  • Dairy Cheer

    Unfortunately, this place is no longer in existence. Sad. I love Frosty Freezes, the collective term I use to mean all independently owned and operated dairy restaurants. Although it’s not uncommon for me to drop $150 + on a meal, there’s something about a cheeseburger, plate of French fries, and a peanut butter milkshake that is hard to beat. My...

  • Patties Place

    Homemade country food; great food, fast and friendly workers. And if you are from the area, there is a good chance you will run into people you know. Everytime I go in here I know someone.

  • Very elegant

    The pastor of the Index Community Church built this nice little place. Very pretty on the inside; very well decorated. Great food and friendly service. The hours seem to always change, but I believe as of now they are closed Sunday-Monday, the rest of the week they are open. There is also a Christian book store inside.

  • Freezer Fresh

    These little types of places are great. Everything is cheap (i.e. ice cream cones 25 cents), they make it fast and they taste great!There is no place to sit, you just pull up and park and walk up to one of the two windows to place your order. Then one of the girls will wave you back over when your food is ready. Did I mention yummy...

  • Giovanni's

    Greasy pizza, all the rage when I was in high school (and when fat and calories were no match for me!). But it is pretty good. I heard they moved locations though, so I don't know if it is still on Prestonsburg street or not. I'll get back to you on that.***I just got back from West Liberty (April 07) and it has moved, but its still Prestonsburg...

  • China King

    West Liberty gets some "culture" haha. This place came after I moved away, so I have only eaten there one time when I was in visiting family. It was good!

  • McDonalds

    Who writes a tip about McDonalds? lolI am including it because it is one of the few places to eat at in West Liberty, plus it is special because I used to work there! ; ) Fish Fillet (number 10?)

  • Food Court

    This is four fast-food restaraunts in one...good for a family with picky people I guess. One can eat here, one can eat there...you get the idea. Seems like the places are always changing, but currently the four restaraunts are: Arby's, Pizza Inn, Long John Silvers and A&W.

West Liberty Transportation

    There is not a bus system, subway, or even a taxi service in West Liberty. No rental car companies.
    But more than likely if you are in West Liberty you have family driving you around anyway. Like me. : )

West Liberty Local Customs

  • Sorghum Festival

    The Sorghum Festival is always the last weekend of September. They close down Main Street and set up a long tent with many booths underneath. At these booths you will find a variety of Appalachian crafts, local art, food, wooden crafts, and other odds/ends things. It is always tradition in my family to purchase a Christmas ornament at the Festival...

  • Bluegrass Festival

    The Bluegrass Festival is exactly what it sounds like- a festival celebrating Bluegrass music. It usually happens around the first of July (in 2005 it was the 10th and 11th) and runs for two days. All sorts of Bluegrass bands play and they also have open mike sessions and gospel music. It’s a good way to see not only nationally touring Bluegrass...

  • Sorghum Festival

    The Sorghum Festival was always a big deal at our house. It was akin to going to the state fair. So what is Sorghum? Think really thick molasses. We eat it on popcorn and biscuits. They have a small carnival, craft booths, a parade, a cane mill and mule, and live music. (Usually country, gospel, and/or bluegrass.) It’s a small festival and nowhere...

West Liberty Warnings and Dangers

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    No longer a problem, they finally got it fixed! But for old times' sake I'll leave it up....

    They are currently expanding the road from West Liberty to Morehead. Since they basically have to tear into a mountain, there are huge rocks everywhere and they are not restrained at all. Be careful when driving this road because the area has been known to have falling rocks anyway, without the help of man.

West Liberty Off The Beaten Path

    Cave Run is mostly located in Rowan County, but since West Liberty is just 15-20 minutes away is makes a great day trip.

    You can swim, have a picnic, watch/feed wildlife, camp, and just basically have fun at the lake!

    I go into more detail on the lake in my Morehead page.
