Roanoke is not only western Virginia’s center for industry, trade, health, education and travel – it is simply a great place to live. Roanoke offers a diversity of culture, history, events and attractions, all framed by the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. The revitalized downtown boasts wonderful dining and shopping, as well as the Historic Roanoke City Market – open year-round. The Science Museum of western Virginia, Hopkins Planetarium, the Taubman Museum of Art, and the Roanoke Valley History Museum all deliver world-class learning and cultural opportunities. And the surrounding areas are abundant with forests, streams and lakes. It’s the best of both worlds and an ideal place to call home.
