Coined the capitol of the Blue Ridge, Roanoke is a fabulous place to visit in itself. Its attractive downtown compliments the beauty of the Appalachian Mountains in which it is nestled. City planners and local business have diligently worked to frame a city that will help ensure your tour is an interesting and good one.
Roanoke city market square is the center of social activity and remains a well-kept focus for leisure entertainment both day and night. Visit the Taubman, Transportation and O'Winston Link museums downtown or refresh at Elmwood Park and Amphitheatre. Branch out and tour other interests in the Roanoke Valley such as the Tanglewood, Towers and Valley View Malls; see the Salem Red Sox play ball; go underground into the Dixie Caverns or drive up Mill Mt to the Roanoke Star and zoo for some fantastic pictures. Whatever the interest, the various niches located in the Roanoke area will accent any visitor's stay.
