At the heart of Hurricane’s appeal is Main Street, home to a diverse and enticing collection of historic buildings, delicious dining, and new shopping adventures that will keep you coming back for the special something you can’t find anywhere else.
Below are some of our favorite stops on Main Street for the next time you “breeze through town”:
Hidden Creek Mercantile and The Copper Room
This 1890’s building was once described as “the handsomest building in Hurricane”. It was eventually connected to the general store and I.O.O.F Lodge next door, and now houses Hidden Creek Mercantile. Unique offerings that focus on West Virginia’s female artists reflect the building’s earlier use as an art gallery. The space is relaxing and their fresh juices, smoothies, snacks and ice creams are the perfect complement to this one-of-a-kind location. Live music events, artist displays, and educational presentations rotate regularly, and upstairs you’ll find The Copper Room – a fully equipped rental space that can be booked for weddings, graduation parties, anniversary celebrations and more.
Bear Wood Company
Bear Wood Company is a must-visit furniture store for a high end, well made piece of furniture that is uniquely West Virginian and will look fantastic in your apartment near Hurricane. Their impressive and elegant designs are completely handmade from hand picked materials and reclaimed woods. In addition to beautiful furniture, they offer interesting decorating items from rustic woods that will create a true feeling of feeling of “home”.
Books & Brews
When it’s time to settle in for a cozy read and some fantastic food, stop by Books & Brews, where you can experience excellent customer service, too. The laid-back space includes used books for sale, games to play while you sip your caramel macchiato, and delicious beer to go with their mouth-watering pizza. Locals rave about the staff – everyone feels at home at Books & Brews!
Rock, Paper, Sisters
Twin sisters Megan and Lindsay decided to combine more than 20 years of marketing and public relations experience to start Rock Paper Sisters in 2012. The result is a charming stationary business that offers outstanding quality and individuality to their clients. In addition to their gorgeous stationery, they also offer appointment only crafterie workshops and one-on-one design services.
My Bella Parties
A Bella “Over the Top” milkshake is appropriately named – these magical creations feature donuts, slices of cake, and colorful candy that will tempt and delight you. My Bella Parties offers an enticing and ever changing variety of scrumptious cupcakes, pastries, ice cream sundaes, and more. The space can be rented for parties, and their balloon sculpting and decorating services really bring a party to life.
“Oodles is an absolutely beautiful shop, filled to the brim with everything your heart can imagine for every occasion and then some,” boasts one of their many fans, and it is not an exaggeration. Lovely furniture and accents for your apartment near Hurricane, Vera Bradley, heavenly candles and eye-catching jewelry fill the bright, cheery space, but the true heart of Oodles is mother/daughter team Judy and Lesa, who make every visitor feel welcome and eager to return.
Feed a healthy appetite with the amazing food at Mountain Que – stick with the usual fare and be blown away by the quality and flavor of their smoked pulled pork, ribs, chicken, brisket and sausages. Or dig into one of their drool-worthy in-house ground brisket burgers (you can even try one with two grilled cheese sandwiches to replace the traditional bun) or a Porkey Pie, featuring the creamiest macaroni and cheese you’ve ever tasted. And bring the kids! Their amazing food also comes at a great price.
So stop into Hurricane for some shopping and dinner on Main Street – you’re likely to find a new reason to come back every time you “breeze through town”.
