Beckley is located in Raleigh County in southern West Virginia. The estimated population is 16,832 residents. The town of Beckley is known for two major tourist attractions: The Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine and Tamarack. The Exhibition Coal Mine is a preserved coal mine that offers daily tours and a history lesson on coal mining. Tamarack, originally built at a cost of ten million dollars and dedicated to former Governor Gaston Caperton, is the home to many artisan crafts from around West Virginia. Tamarack also features a fine dining area with meals prepared by chefs trained at The Greenbrier, a world famous four-star resort complex in White Sulphur Springs. Outdoor recreational activities near Beckley include whitewater rafting on the New and Gauley Rivers, kayaking, rock climbing, mountain biking, fishing and hiking. Wintertime skiing, snowboarding and tubing are also just a short drive from Beckley. Several special events and festivals are held in the city each year. Tamarack's Appalachian Music and Arts Festival, held at Tamarack Park, features some of the finest music in West Virginia. The Kids Classic Festival, a week-long event, is held each September and offers almost every children's activity imaginable. The Pumpkin Harvest Festival has everything from classic cars on display to a horseshoe pitchin contest, music, clowns and, of course, great food like warm apple pie and cold cider.

Beckley Weather & Climate

The humid continental climate is marked by variable weather patterns and a large seasonal temperature variance. Summers are often warm and humid with frequent thunderstorms and winters can be very cold with frequent snowfall and persistent snow cover. The seasonal temperature variance is typically 25-35C (45-63F) and increases as one moves further inland. Places with at least four months of average daily temperatures above 10 C (50 F) and at least one month below 0 C (32 F) or -3 C (26.6 F) depending on source, and which do not meet the criteria for an arid or semiarid climate, are classified as humid continental.
