Huntington is West Virginia's second largest city and one of the most visited. Huntington is known as the "Jewel City" because of its many green fields and valuable natural resources. Marshall University, over Harris Riverfront Park, attracts thousands of students every year.

Several unique festivals are held in Huntington throughout the year. The West Virginia Hot Dog Festival, which includes a hot-dog eating contest, is one of the most popular summer events. The Jazz-MU-Tazz, held in June, is a weekend-long series of both outdoor and indoor concerts, and the Huntington Dogwood Arts and Crafts Festival is a showcase of folk artists and their creations. One of the most popular festivals for tourists visiting Huntington is the Guyandotte Heritage Days, and the related Guyandotte Civil War Days (both in November), where historical battle reenactments, period music, and all types of entertainment take over the city.

Visitors to Huntington may want to explore the numerous green areas within the city limits. Camp Mad Anthony Wayne Park is great for hiking, picnicking, and playing disc golf. McClelland Park is the preferred stop for those wishing to play sports, as there are several courts there. Ritter Park has an outdoor amphitheater that often offers free concerts and plays, a tennis center, and a formal rose garden. Camden Park is the oldest amusement park in West Virginia still in operation. Open in 1903, Camden Park is also one of the oldest amusement parks in the country. The park features classic rides such as a haunted house, a penny arcade, and a log flume, plus several children's rides.

Huntington is also home to the Keith-Albee Theatre, a former vaudeville venue in West Virginia. The Keith-Albee Theatre now offers visitors movie shows and live performances, although many of the visitors come here to get a glance of the past rather than to enjoy the show. The Museum of Radio and Technology is also located in Huntington. A memorial to the golden era of radio, the museum features some amazing exhibits, including the 1930s radio shop with a working radio statio), the 1950s show room (TV), and the military communication display. A large gift shop makes it possible for visitors to take home a reminder of the past.
