The Roanoke Valley is conveniently located off Interstate 81 and the Blue Ridge Parkway at the southern tip of the Shenandoah Valley. Surrounded by scenic beauty, the Roanoke region is a perfect destination for visitors wanting a little of everything in a Blue Ridge mountain getaway. Experience our railroad heritage, take in the arts and culture, shop, eat and enjoy the wealth of outdoor recreation in the heart of our breathtaking mountains.

Roanoke Mountain

The Valley includes attractions such as the Taubman Museum of Art, Virginia Museum of Transportation, Mill Mountain Zoo and Center in the Square. In the center of it all is the Historic Market District including a Farmers’ Market, unique shopping and several restaurants.

Throughout the year we offer an array of events such as the Strawberry Festival, Kite Festival, Salem Fair and Dickens of a Christmas. We are also home to the Salem Red Sox.

It's a good time to plan a trip…and there's always a good time to be had in Virginia's Blue Ridge.  To learn how to WIN FREE family getaways and more, visit
