Shepherdstown West Virginia is an eclectic mix of old town history, appreciation for the arts and a college town. The 55 mile per hour road leading into town runs over tight hills and curves, barely supporting the maximum driving limit. The red brick downtown area is reminiscent of New England architecture with heavy mid-Atlantic underpinnings. The main drive through town is dotted with funky boutique shops, restaurants and college coffee houses. This is definitely a great place to spend a Saturday afternoon. Word of caution, some parking areas require residential permits. There are often no signs stating as such.
