Glen Jean is the apple of the Appalachian’s eye. It is a sweet spot thriving amidst the warmth of nature and often mistaken for a Swiss mountain village. Connected with Charleston through Interstate 64, the town is a part of the string that connects Fayetteville, Montgomery, Bradley and Ansted.
The town’s beauty is in its size and its location. The town is yet to cross its 500-people milestone and it’s the reason why people live freely and far away from the worries of big cities. Geographically, it is the gateway town to the Summit Bechtel Reserve. It is also home to the Babcock State Park, famous for its iconic picnicking locations. Go a little further and be greeted by the hot-springs of the George Washington and Jefferson National Forest. This is the Appalachians at its very best, with all the infrastructure ready to get involved with every kind of outdoor activity known to man. It’s no exaggerations. From cliff-camping to zip-lines, to kayaking to mountain biking, the place is wild and cut off from civilization.
The local economy survives on small enterprises while the big players are mostly half an hour’s drive away. Some businesses are being outsourced from nearby Charleston and a mushrooming IT and logistics industry can be seen. Work remains at work and the city is a good place to unwind and socialize. Friendly café’s like The Cold Spot and Godfather's Pizza Express have a very interesting evening crowd and it’s quite addictive if you are an extrovert.
