About Berkeley Springs, West Virginia

Berkeley Springs is a small town in Morgan County that’s centered around the natural mineral water springs that gave the town its name.

These idyllic crystal clear waters were first discovered by the Native Americans, but now draw visitors from urban areas who are looking to relax, and have done so for centuries – this destination was a favorite of famous names like George Washington and James Rumsey.

Berkeley Springs was nicknamed 'America's first spa’. Now, you have four to choose from. All are kept at a constant temperature of 74.3 F, and it’s estimated that 2,000 gallons of clear, sparkling water fall per minute.

The weather in Berkeley Springs is somewhat changeable – there are four seasons, so pick your travel dates to match your favorite. Summers are warm and winter is unpredictable, but there's nothing quite like stepping out of the cold into a hot spring... It's completely up to you!

What to do

Obviously, you have to take a dip in the springs. Whether you select the roman baths or outdoor swimming pool, it really doesn't matter. You'll get great views of the hillside and will have an experience unlike any other.

Lastly, finish off a hard day at the spa by having a cool beer from the Berkeley Spring Brewing Company. They use the mineral water too, so it has a very fresh taste.
