What Bert Has To Say About Roanoke Metro Area

Roanoke is a mid-sized commercial and transportation center located between the Blue Ridge and Appalachian mountains in the western part of the state. The city area spreads through a narrow valley surrounded by hills and mountains. The downtown area itself is an American classic with museums, shops and a famous farmer’s market in a lively historic central core known as Market Square. More modern commercial structures surround this core. On the whole Roanoke is more “old” than “new” South, but is bringing in a strong influx of northern migrants (evidenced among other things by a minor league hockey team).
