For those who love to head into a coffee shop in the morning for a morning pick-me-up, you’ll want to make sure to head over to Mugshots. Frequented by regulars as well as visitors, this coffee shop is a place you come to make friends with the owner and his staff and try the well-named coffees, teas, and breakfast options.

You won’t want to pass up the Oglebay Good Zoo where you can see over 50 species including cheetahs, lemurs, red pandas, tortoises, and barn animals. And to get the most out of your visit to the zoo, you’ll want to schedule a Behind the Scenes Tour where you’ll be guided around by one of the very knowledgeable and friendly zookeepers to learn about the histories of the animals currently staying at the zoo.
