Destination of the Day: American Mountain Theater, Elkins, WV, AND American Heritage Music Hall, Ronceverte, WV

Destination 5 in the series "Don't Stop The Music"

The Monongahela National Forest Region is a national treasure. Located in the West Virginia interior, the four county region has so much to offer the CTer that a long weekend might not be enough. As the sun sets though you might need to search a little bit for evening entertainment. Enter two fine theatres. The first is the American Mountain Theatre which specializes in Branson, MO, style entertainment with a gospel Sunday program. The smaller and more casual American Heritage Music Hall offers a range of traditional mountain music. This CTer highly recommends investing the time and experiencing the music of the region to better understand the joys and hardships of the real people to make this area their only home. 

A word for newbies: Make it a point of locating the theatre of your choice during the day using the route you are planning to use. Nearly all the roads have tight curves and climb and decent rapidly, with some signage difficult to see.
