Anywhere in Virginia is steeped in United States history but, not everywhere in Virginia offers such a diverse selection of educational activities for its residents or such beautiful surroundings. Living in Roanoke County means being surrounded by the old and majestic Blue Ridge Mountains with the beautiful Roanoke River meandering through.
Living here means that Camp Roanoke (right off of I-81) is right at your fingertips – offering camping, hiking, and even rock climbing and caving adventures. It means Splash Valley – featuring two 34-foot water slides, a current river, and a kiddie spray park- is right outside your door. It also means that Explore Park is right close by too – just off the Blue Ridge Parkway - offering biking trails and educational nature hikes, not to mention canoeing and picnicking opportunities. You can also hike the Appalachian Trail – the longest hiking trail in the country, spanning over 2000 miles and 14 states! For something really fun and exciting, visit the Mill Mountain Zoo!
When the winter snow flies, no need to worry – you will find plenty of indoor entertainment at the Green Ridge Recreation Center and the Brambleton Center. Green Ridge has a variety of indoor activities including a swimming pool and a walking track (with a beautiful view of the Blue Ridge Mountains) while Brambleton Center offers all sorts of classes such as pottery and ceramics.
No matter what the season, you can always enjoy the variety of artisan food adventures available in the area.
