Living in Beckley, WV, you will quickly find that the phrase "blue-collar" is something the town takes great pride in. The town started out as an old coal mining town and even has a museum with a restored mine to celebrate that fact. Pride is one of the things that you will find Beckley, WV could probably bottle and sell.

Speaking of selling, if you are looking to find or sell trinkets or "treasures" you need to visit the multiple antique stores and malls throughout Beckley, WV. Even residents of decades can find unique items for their home or office at these shops and spend hours on a Saturday discovering the talents the residents of the town have.

Due to it's location, Beckley has it's share of chain restaurants in town, but as a local you need to visit King Tut's. Just like Beckley itself, it's a trip back in time to the days of the drive-in restaurant with curbside service.
