My husband is a West Virginia native, and I've been there a few times. It's really nice, I felt like I went back in time a little tho. Not in a bad way at all, just that EVERYONE in WV is so nice! I never met someone who was rude or wouldn't give you their shirt off their back. My husband is from Beckley, so my experience is pretty limited to around that area. My husband actually proposed at the River Gorge. My father lives in NC, it was okay just not as nice as California. Now SC is GORGEOUS! So much to do, the aquarium at Myrtle Beach is definitely worth going to. VA is really nice (we live in the DC metro area) but there are some RUDE A$$ people here. There was an old man who literally pushed me out of the way to get past everyone that was in line at a kiosk, but the kicker was I was holding my 8 month old (at the time) when he did it! We haven't been to VA beach yet, but I hear that's nice. But I'm guessing you'll stick to WV and NC. Both are nice, but overall I'd pick WV just because it's so beautiful there, but so much different from CA. It's a great place to experience, especially if you've been in California most of your life. Just don't drive!!! Lol. We made the trip from Kansas several times, and I couldn't imagine starting in California to over here. :)
