Popular travel website Trip Advisor just named Virginia’s Roanoke one of Americas best small cities to visit this year in its newest article “23 Great American Small Cities to Visit in 2018.”
This small Blue Ridge city is being praised for being a bike-friendly destination, its local art, and its delicious craft beer scenes. Trip Advisor also encourages its visitors to check out the Taubman Museum of Art in Downtown Roanoke.
Here’s what they had to say:
“This hospitable city is watched over by the iconic neon Roanoke Star on Mill Mountain. Roanoke is particularly popular with mountain bikers—the valley here has even been listed in the top ten most bike-friendly places in the country. There are plenty of self-guided themed tours to follow, such as Virginia’s Blue Ridge Beerway and the Art by Bike tour. Continue the artistic theme with a visit to the Taubman Museum of Art, which is hosting exhibitions on American classic cars, Native American art, and much more in 2018.”
Roanoke earned its spot on the list alongside other destinations in Texas, California, Arizona, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Washington, Michigan, Tennessee, South Carolina, Montana, Utah, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Georgia, and Florida.
