Bridgeport is situated approximately 170 miles (274 kilometers) west of the national capital Washington, and 80 miles (129 kilometers) south of Pittsburgh.
Staying in only one place, regardless of its popularity, usually only offers you a narrow glimpse into the broader cultural and natural fabric of a region. So allow time to visit Northern Panhandle's other cultural and natural attractions. Buckhannon, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the north, and Weston, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the northeast of Bridgeport are worth visiting if you're keen to explore this region further.
Rent a vehicle and head to Wheeling, a retail and transport hub for the region, some 60 miles (97 kilometers) from Bridgeport. The place offers a range of points of interest, including West Virginia Independence Hall, Oglebay Park and Wheeling Island Casino and Racetrack. Eckhart House and Capitol Music Hall are just a sample of the other attractions that await.
Relax in the region's beautiful waterways with a spot of fishing or canoeing.
When booking your trip to Bridgeport, keep in mind that the nearest major airport, North Central West Virginia Airport, is located in in Clarksburg, 2 miles (3 kilometers) away.
