Roanoke is often referred to as “Magic City” and the “Star City of the South“, with a colorful, 100 foot star overlooking the valley from the top of Mill Mountain. It’s a popular college town with Virginia Tech in nearby Blacksburg, and many visitors travel here during the summer & fall to the rive through the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.

The town began as “Big Lick” in 1852, named after salt deposits which attracted wildlife to the nearby river. The town’s location in the Blue Ridge Mountains between Maryland and Tennessee made it the transportation hub of western Virginia, and led to rapid growth.

During colonial times, it was an important hub for trails and roads. In fact, it was the destination of one of the most heavily traveled American roads during the 18th century, with the colonial Great Wagon Road running from Philadelphia through the Shenandoah Valley to the site of Big Lick.

In 1882, the town officially became Roanoke, which originates from the name given to the river by the Algonquian. At the time, its economy was heavily reliant on the Norfolk and Western Railroad, with the main focus on manufacturing and textiles; it was once a center for the Sun Belt’s garment industry.

Today, the city has become the media, health care, and commercial/retail center for much of southwest Virginia. Advance Auto Parts, one of the nation’s largest auto parts retailers, is headquartered here, and UPS operates a major cargo facility at Roanoke Regional Airport.

Roanoke refers to itself as “Virginia’s Music City“: the oldest music club opened here in 1908, and ever since, music of every genre is welcome here, from bluegrass, choral, classical, rock and traditional music.

It’s also known as “Virginia’s Theater City“: the city hosts a variety of plays and performances throughout the year at venues including Roanoke’s Children’s Theatre, Mill Mountain Theatre, Showtimers Community Theatre, Star City Playhouse.

Since early in the 19th century, the area has attracted STEM specialists (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) in support of local railroad and transport industries.

Venture outside of the city, and you’re free to explore a variety of outdoors adventure loaded with activities. Things to do within driving distance include the Appalachian Trail, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Bernard’s Landing, Bridge Water Marina, and Smith Mountain Lake State Park & Public Beach.

Climate in Roanoke, VA

Roanoke is home to a humid subtropical climate with four distinct, but mild seasons, despite exceeding elevations of 900 feet in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

The most hazardous weather comes in the form of flooding; heavy rains, most often brought on by the remnants of Hurricane and Tropical Storm activity, is the main culprit, with heavy rainfall draining into the narrow valley.

Residents and visitors of the valley may have to deal with allergies brought on by excessive pollen. The mountains are densely covered in forestation; due to childhood asthma and allergies, Wayne Newton’s family has to relocate to Phoenix for its drier climate.

That said, no clinical study has proven it’s more or less of a problem here than cities with similar vegetation and weather. Still, it may be a good idea to pack your Allegra, Claritin, or Zyrtec just in case.
