Morgantown Summer 2021 Edition

EDITOR’S NOTE

magazine has changed, too. We made the leap to a sassier short x wide page format that we’ve been thinking about for a while. We’ve adopted a seasonal publishing schedule: Summer, Fall, Win- ter, and BOM, because Best of Morgantown has become a season in its own right. And we’ve added a dining guide in appreciation of the satisfying variety of restau- rants we are lucky to still enjoy. This summer, we all get to rediscover the restaurants, shops, and events that make Morgan- town a great place to live. Make the most of it! Lots of big, genuine smiles at the April 10 Arts Walk!

N ow we know: Spring is even better when it coincides with the wind-down of a crushing pandemic. Almost anywhere you go these days, just about anyone you talk with, relief shines through. Even joy. The April 10 Arts Walk, first of the season, may have been the best-attended ever. Our Morgantown magazine online calendar is starting to burst with events again. Sometimes, we even get to see strangers smile—one way the pandemic has changed us all for the better is by reminding us to appreciate that kind of simple pleasure. During the pandemic, we’ve heard that people are fleeing crowded urban places for right- size cities like ours. In this issue we cover the new Ascend WV program that invites remote work- ers to move here. You’ll also find stories on where to live, things to do, and what’s new. Just as we’ve changed during the pandemic, Morgantown

See you around town—
