Olde Main Plaza in St. Albans is the city’s center for art, shopping and dining. The Alban Arts Center features local theater productions of classic shows like Annie, The Wizard of Oz, and Arsenic and Old Lace. Award-winning Lil’ Bit of Heaven Cupcakes, a quaint coffee shop, and the largest violin shop in West Virginia (complete with a recording studio) surprise travelers in this classic downtown district. Dining options range from the town’s unofficial “meeting place,” best known for hot wings and cold brews, to a seafood-Italian joint, a Mexican cantina; and fine dining in the historic Angela’s on the River. Just steps away from Olde Main Plaza is the Coal River, with the best flat-water kayaking in the region.
