What makes Davis a special place to live?

Davis provides a refreshingly eclectic-yet-utilitarian atmosphere unlike anywhere else in West Virginia. It’s a peaceful place where time moves a little slower; a place where you can see the stars at night. It’s the kind of place that when you travel—no matter where your adventures lead—you’re always excited to come back home.

The folks who call Davis, and Tucker County, home are incredibly passionate about living here, and that passion is palpable in the smiles of residents and storefronts of local businesses. It’s a place where you’ll get a homely “howdy” from local passersby and recommendations on the best trails from local adventurers, and you’ll be on a first-name basis with the barkeep after a few local pints.

Davis is surrounded by some of West Virginia’s most beloved, cherished, and unique landscapes—landscapes that will become your backyard. And in what better backyard to raise a family? Endless outdoor opportunities abound for family hiking, biking, camping, and fishing within minutes of your door. Cultural opportunities abound for immersion into art, music, and community. It’s no surprise that many native residents who spent their childhoods skiing and camping in these woods now own and operate successful and exciting local businesses.

For some, Davis is a magical place to retire. The strong sense of community cultivates instant friendships, and plenty of adventures await folks of all skill levels and physical capacities. But regardless of age, Davis is full of people who genuinely want to live in West Virginia—people who simultaneously embrace the region’s history while remaining focused on its future.
