Roanoke, Virginia, is a quiet town in Southwest Virginia, rich in its history of the railroad. We have a multitude of parks and offer many outdoor activities for adventure seekers. Unique to our location is a large man made star that sits atop the most central mountain called Mill Mountain. The downtown is known for its many shops, restaurants, and boutiques and a science museum and farmer’s market.

I would like for someone to know they we are know for the mountains in our area. We also have zoo on top of a mountain as well. I would also like them to know we have a giant star on top of the mountain where the zoo is located. The schools in are area have very good academic programs and have very good sports teams.

Roanoke is a beautiful place as it offers the best of both worlds – a city and country feel. Even in the city, Roanoke does not have a big city vibe, which is nice when you are not used to that. The countryside is green and spread out, where one can sit out on their porch in a rocking chair and really relax. Come to Roanoke, you’ll see!
