The Greenbrier Valley Theatre, West Virginia’s official state theatre, offers year-round performances, and well-known artists appear in concert at Carnegie Hall. The town is home to the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine and a campus of New River Community and Technical College.
The Greenbrier in nearby White Suphur Springs is one of the world’s top luxury resorts.

The Greenbrier River, accessed between Lewisburg and White Sulphur Springs, draws anglers and kayakers, and the 75-mile long Greenbrier River Trail paralleling the river is popular with hikers and bicyclists.
