Roanoke, once Western Virginia's railroading center, is experiencing a new wave of excitement.
Blessed with an abundance of beautiful landscapes, Virginia Mountain Region's "Star City of the South" offers not only breathtaking views but also a myriad of opportunities to ditch the car and venture on foot.
Step back in time and explore the history of locomotives at the Virginia Museum of Transportation, celebrating Roanoke's rich rail heritage. This official transportation museum of Virginia exhibits diesel, electric and steam locomotives as well as antique automobiles, trucks, carriages, and much more. Take it a step further and go to the O. Winston Link Museum to see the famous black and white train images!
Wave those lighters in the air, you Front Row Fanatics. Major concerts and touring Broadway shows appear at the Berglund Center regularly, often to sold-out crowds. This spacious coliseum is within walking distance to downtown Roanoke, so why not experience the vibrant nightlife?
