What Bert Has To Say About Blacksburg-Christiansburg-Radford Metro Area

This tri-city area, really a cluster of several small towns, is best known as home of the 25,000-student, 2600-acre campus of the Virginia Polytechnic Institute (better known as Virginia Tech). Blacksburg, population 40,000, is the largest of the small triangle of towns including Christiansburg, Radford, Merrimac and Fairlawn. The area and Blacksburg in particular combines small-town feel and college-town amenities with a mountain setting, outdoor recreation, and proximity to Roanoke and its excellent arts, commerce, and health care amenities.
