UFO Pad.

World's First UFO Landing Pad

For a visitor center, it was really a fun place! The ladies who were working there said we were aliens because we were from West Virginia. The First UFO Landing Pad is clean and well kept, and it has a gift shop with a UFO theme.

There is a pool hall and auto parts store across the street in case the aliens need to pick up some repair supplies or just relax. The gift shop was closed on Mondays so I did not get to go inside. The UFO landing pad is featured on the town logo.
