BETTER HOMES SELECTS OGLEBAY

 WHEELING, W.Va., May 3 /PRNewswire/ -- A personal visit to Oglebay Resort in Wheeling convinced Better Homes & Gardens travel editor Lois Anne Naylor that the magazine should name Oglebay among the top 30 family resorts in the United States.
 The resort was listed in prestigious company in the May issue of Better Homes & Gardens magazine. A framed certificate detailing the award was sent to general manager G. Randolph Worls.
 "We are delighted to be chosen as a family resort because we've always stressed that Oglebay is the perfect vacation spot for families," said Worls. "We have plenty of activities that appeal to every age, and I don't know of any other resort that can boast of a zoo on its premises," Worls added.
 Three travel writers toured family resorts across the country, in addition to a trip to the island of Hawaii, to make their selections, narrowing them to 30.
 Listing Oglebay as "one of those wonderful places that few people outside a region know about," the article notes that it "offers more -- and charges less -- than most private resorts." Oglebay is owned by the City of Wheeling.
 Oglebay offers three golf courses, indoor and outdoor pools and a fitness center, 11 tennis courts, horseback riding, paddleboating and fishing, a children's zoo, a science theater and intricate miniature train display, an accredited museum with period rooms and changing exhibits, acres of blooming gardens and a spectacular glass collection with glassmaking demonstrations opening in mid-June. Special events are scheduled regularly with many being free.
 Oglebay is located 2-1/2 miles off Interstate 70 on Route 88 north just outside of Wheeling in the northern panhandle of West Virginia. For reservations, call the Wilson Lodge at 800-624-6988.
