Good Evening and Welcome to Roanoke VA, I hope you enjoy your visit!

The city of Roanoke (pop. 64,000) is the largest city in a rapidly growing metro area of 125,000 people. It is situated in a large valley in the Blue Ridge mountains of western Virginia. The avg. income in Roanoke is among the highest of any municipality in "Southern Cities" at just under $120,000. The city is a regional center for finance, military, manufacturing, research, and agriculture, with a regional airport with direct flights to Reagan National in DC, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, and Charlotte.

Here is an overview of the city of Roanoke, which is surrounded by forest, farms, and mountains.
