Getting familiar with Parkersburg, the Greater Parkersburg Visitors Bureau hosts tour leaders to showcase the region.
The group is spending four days and nights in the mountain state... stopping in Parkersburg, Wheeling, Morgantown, Elkins, Weston, and concluding in Charleston.
Thursday the group toured the Blennerhassett Muesum before heading to the Blennerhassett Hotel for dinner.
Donna Briggs, a volunteer at the Convention Bureau, said, "Well I think it's intriguing to always get out and see something different than what you normally have offered in your area. And perhaps for some of them this is an experience they wanted to have and there is just such a variety here in our area."
Thursday's excursion ended at the Smoot Theater with a dessert tour.
