Wheeling is located in the northern panhandle of West Virginia, and is considered part of the Pittsburgh Tri-State area. It has an estimated population of 29,000. Wheeling is nestled on the banks of the Ohio River, and this scenic riverfront location, along with a rich history and award-winning events, makes the city an appealing vacation destination. There is something here for everyone; world-class golf courses, a zoo set on 30 acres of flowers, trees and hills, a hotel/casino/racetrack, museums, arts and outdoor recreation. Carriage House Museum has beautiful glass blowing shows and the Stifel Fine Arts Center offers exhibits and musical performances throughout the year. The Wheeling Suspension Bridge is the true gateway to the West. Built in 1849, it's part of the National Road, and now carries light traffic, as well as pedestrian traffic between downtown and Wheeling Island. Historic National Road is full of landmarks, being the first federally funded highway. A sixteen-mile section of the historic road stretches through Wheeling, uninterrupted by modern construction. Wheeling is also home to the Victoria Theater, which is the oldest theater in West Virginia. The Wheeling Heritage Port, a focal point for the city, is home to numerous festivals, concerts, celebrations, a regatta and numerous visits from the Delta, Mississippi and American Queens. Outdoor fun can be found at Wheeling's Oglebay Park, which offers two golf courses, swimming, tennis, horseback riding, fishing and picnicking. Wheeling also has a paved trail system that is one of the region's largest.
