Bluefield is located in the southern Appalachian Mountains of West Virginia, directly across the Virginia border. As of the 2000 census, the population was 11,451 residents. Bluefield is West Virginia's most elevated city at 2,655 feet above sea level. The town is nicknamed "Nature's Air Conditioned City," because the relatively high elevation keeps summer temperatures moderate. Since 1938, the Chamber of Commerce has given free lemonade whenever the temperature has surpassed 90 degrees F. This thriving city is home to the Mountain Festival, Blue-Gray Horse Show, and College Soccer Tournament. It also boasts nearby ski resorts, white water rafting and ATV mountain trails. Cultural amenities in Bluefield include a dance theater and art galleries with works produced by local artisans. The Bluefield Arts Center also hosts local holiday musicals, classic works and contemporary dramas and comedies through the popular Summit Players Theater. Other attractions in Bluefield include the Crab Orchard Museum and Pioneer Park in nearby Tazewell, the East River Mountain Overlook and the Greater Bluefield Community Center. Pipestem State Park, located minutes from Bluefield, offers golf, horseback riding, hiking and gourmet restaurants. Bluefield is the hometown to one of Americas Nobel Prize winners, Dr. John F. Nash, (A Beautiful Mind.)
