A major transportation hub located in scenic southwestern Virginia, Roanoke sits along the Roanoke River in a beautiful valley between the Blue Ridge and the Allegheny mountains. And if your moving truck rental is heading to The Capital of the Blue Ridge, you'll join a population of about 97,000, who reside in this community that's a three-time recipient of the All-American City designation.
First explored in 1671, farmed and settled in the 1740s and officially founded in 1854, Roanoke was originally called Big Lick because of the outcroppings of salt found on the nearby river. The area's primary landmark is an 88-foot illuminated neon star that overlooks the city from Mill Mountain. The star's glow can be seen for 60 miles…and explains one of Roanoke's other popular nicknames: The Star City.
The cost of living in Roanoke is about 10 percent less than the U.S. average. But the city's diverse neighborhoods are another reason that the residents love to live here. There are 48 neighborhoods in Roanoke including Riverland/Walnut Hills, Mountain View, Preston Park, Norwich, Wilmont, Peachtree/Norwood and Ridgewood Park. Other nearby areas worth touring include South Roanoke, Gainsboro, Mill Mountain and Gilmer.
You'll find that the gorgeous terrain surrounding Roanoke will draw you outdoors to enjoy the scenery. And once there, you can take advantage of more than 10 miles of winding greenways. There's also a trail system on Mill Mountain for bikers and runners, plus more than 60 parks across the metropolitan area. Nearby Carvins Cove Natural Reserve is the second largest municipal park in the nation and offers opportunities for hiking, biking, fishing and boat rentals. Other popular Roanoke-area parks include Explore Park, Green Hill Park, Lake Moomaw, Falling Creek Park and the Philpott Reservoir.
What else is there to see and do in Roanoke? Plenty! So be sure to check out (or check out at least one more time if you're moving away from the area) the Taubman Museum of Art, Mill Mountain Zoological Park, the O. Winston Link Museum, the Virginia Museum of Transportation and the Science Museum of Western Virginia & Hopkins Planetarium. You also shouldn't miss Smith Mountain Lake State Park, Douthat State Park, New River Trail State Park, Market Square and the Blue Ridge Parkway.
