West Virginia Division of Tourism

The West Virginia Division of Tourism has ordered another 50,000 copies of the state travel guide from a vendor to keep up with demand.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports that more than 8,000 people requested a copy of the "Wild Wonderful West Virginia" travel guide in July alone.

The Division of Tourism has distributed about 450,000 travel guides this year. The guides also are available at interstate welcome centers.

Tourism Commissioner Amy Goodwin says the division plans to improve the content and appearance of next year's guide.
