Roanoke Overview

Roanoke is located 168 miles west of Virginia's state capital, Richmond, nestled between the Blue Ridge and the Virginia Allegheny Highlands. Its proximity to the Blue Ridge Parkway near the Shenandoah National Park makes Roanoke perfect for hiking biking, camping and even hand gliding.

With a population around 95,000 this city boasts some excellent restaurants and amenities, all overlooked by the illuminated Roanoke Star perched on Mill Mountain, from which the town derives its nickname, the Star City.
