Over the years, Morgantown has been ranked as the “No. 1 Small City in America,” the “Best Small City in the East” and the “3rd Best Small Town in the Nation” by various outlets who recognize the city’s distinctive union of big-city amenities with a small-town atmosphere. The natural beauty of Morgantown's well known mountain ridges and deep valleys is awe-inspiring and provides a great opportunity for skiing, hiking, rock climbing, white-water rafting, snowboarding, hunting and fishing. Morgantown is home to the state's land grant institution, West Virginia University, which boasts a student enrollment of over 26,000, as well as the beloved Mountaineer sports teams.
Morgantown's economy is well grounded in the production of the state's abundant supply of natural resources such as coal and natural gas. However, the emergences of the U.S. Department of Energy, the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health Center for Disease Control, the Robert C. Byrd Health Sciences Complex of West Virginia University Hospitals, the Software Valley, and the West Virginia High Technology Consortium, have diversified Morgantown's economy. This development has created a vibrant community rapidly becoming the educational and business nucleus of the state with great expectations for future growth and expansion.
Located at the intersection of I-79 and I-68, the proximity to Pittsburgh, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C. is more than convenient by car or a short commuter flight from Hart Field, Morgantown's Municipal Airport.
