Parts of the garden have rose beds that have many generations of history while others are research beds for the improvement of the rose hardiness...more
Ritter Park is a large park on the edge of Huntington whose most beautiful feature is its rose garden, which features dozens of varieties of beautiful rose bushes. It is open to the public and admission is free. The rose garden is a very pleasant place to spend a few minutes while in Huntington.more
For a small city, Huntington has a very good art museum. The Huntington Museum of Art features a collection that was built up through donations of collections from area residents. As such, it is a bit eclectic, but of high quality. Highlights include collections of English silver, English paintings, American paintings, antique firearms, Middle...more

The last weekend in April is the time for th annual arts and crafts festival to celebrate the flowering dogwood trees. It is three days of vendors and original artists exhibiting their wares. The event is indoors and there are plenty of places to get a beverage or a snack to keep you going. Each vendor has a booth about 10-foot wide and there are...more

The criminal statistics for the greater Huntington metropolitan area is not very good.
Crime happens in Huntington at one and one-half the rate of an average American town of similar size. The biggest problems are non-violent crimes like home burglaries, garage vandalism, car break-ins, shop-lifting. Most of these do not greatly affect tourists.
However, there are 82 sex offenders registered for the Huntington area.
to see more information about this, go to the website below.
Use caution and take some safety advise:
ask the motel staff if there are any parts of town to be avoided; put valuables in the motel safebox; don't flash your cash or act like a tourist; lock car doors; keep a good eye on the kids if they are traveling with you.
We had no problems at all and we ate, shopped and stayed overnight in the area.
If you happen to be on US60 going from Barboursville to Huntington, WV and you think you see a pink elephant standing out in front of a small strip of shops, you are not hallucinating.There is a huge pink elephant (15-20feet tall), just standing on a plot of grass. Not sure if it is an advertising gimmick or what, but it sure is an eye-catcher. to...more

Visit the Student Center. I think it's been renovated since this picture. The fountain is in memory of the MU football team that died in a tragic plane crash while taking off from the Tri-state Airport on November 14, 1970. The fountain is turned off for the winter every November 14.more
