Charleston, West Virginia is the capital city of West Virginia and the intersection of three Interstate highways. With a metropolitan population of over 300,000, Charleston is home to a variety of sports, recreational, and cultural events. The West Virginia Symphony Orchestra plays in the newly built Clay Center and the West Virginia Power Class A Minor League baseball team plays several blocks away at the new Appalachian Power Park. During Labor Day weekend, Charleston is host to the Sternwheel Regatta, which has been attracting crowds for over thirty years.
