Metro Mountain Living in the Heart of Virginia’s Blue Ridge

Our native Roanoke is the largest city on the Appalachian Trail and the quintessential capital of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountain area. Known for its diverse, mountain adventures amidst a big city backdrop, the “Star City of the South” is a premier destination for entertainment, natural beauty and outdoor recreation including hiking, biking, fishing and watersports, or simply cruising along the Blue Ridge Parkway—America’s Favorite Drive.

Both in and around Roanoke Valley, residents and visitors alike enjoy amenities, unique attractions, and a surprising array of cultural experiences. There’s also Virginia’s Blue Ridge Cheers Trail, known for its diverse variety of craft breweries, wineries and distilleries, plus plenty of nationally renowned culinary experiences, everything from The Roanoker Restaurant, lauded for its biscuits and southern-styled fare, to The River and Rail, voted one of the “Top 100 Places to Eat in America.”

Sports fans will delight all year long in the area’s array of NCAA and professional teams, including the Virginia Tech Hokies, the Salem Red Sox and Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs of the Southern Professional Hockey League. There’s also a large selection of antique shops, farmers markets and more contemporary shopping destinations. That in addition to plentiful museums, galleries and historical sites.

In all, there’s plenty of nature and history to enjoy in and around Roanoke, but equally as much to love about its modern-day identity. And for seniors looking to enjoy ready, anytime access to indoor and outdoor recreation, arts and entertainment, and all the indelible shopping and dining experiences that make up many of the best and brightest in Virginia’s Blue Ridge, The Park Oak Grove is an excellent gateway to the Star City and beyond.
