When I got married in 2004, a group of friends gave us newlyweds a weekend getaway at The Greenbrier Resort, located in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. At first, we were curious about the destination, but after spending a mini-honeymoon here, we were were charmed by its quality, charm, and anachronistic flare.
Located on 6500 acres in the Allegheny Mountains, this resort is arguably the finest in the Southern USA. It’s a great place to relax (in the amazing spa), play golf, sip afternoon tea, or undertake numerous other activities. The highlight for us was the tour of The Bunker, the secret Cold War remote location for the US Congress (in the event of nuclear holocaust). The other highlight was exploring the wildly-coloful interiors, designed by New Yorker Dorothy Draper starting in the 1940While a little bit off the beaten path, any Savvy Navigator must add The Greenbrier to the 2015 getaway list.
