The above defined regions are based on the WVU produced West Virginia Tourism Regions Map, and is used to create the regions that are used on the site. When selecting regions for your group, these can be both where you are located and areas that you would either be willing to travel to, service, or normally expect to generate interest from others.
- A Pagan Owned & Operated business that makes house calls would typically choose a more defined geographical area than one that routinely ships products or offers online/digital services.
- A physical store that customers would visit, should similarly choose a more specific geographical area.
- An event may attract people from all over the state, but primarily be situated in a general region, combining “Regional: WV & Surrounding Areas” and one or two other regions would adequately describe the region for the event.
- Main Groups, due to general nature and broad interest, will apply to all of the following regions.
Please consider members of your group and their perspective, when choosing your regions. If you straddle the outer bounds of a region, or are effectively in the corners pocket, it is acceptable to choose multiple near regions.
