Roanoke Attractions:

The symposium hotel is in central Roanoke, the largest city, shopping, and dining destination in the "Virginia Mountains Region." Roanoke is an entry point for the Blue Ridge Parkway - "America's Most Scenic Drive." Local points of interest include several museums, the Historic Roanoke City Market, various craft breweries, and one of Virginia's favorite hikes, McAfee Knob.

Nearby areas are a playground for outdoor enthusiasts with lakes to boat, rivers to fish, and peaks to conquer. But that's not all, there are many historical and cultural attractions. So consider a family vacation before or after the symposium!

Roanoke received the most votes in a recent poll by readers of Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine to be recognized as the 2015 Best Mid-Sized Town (population 10,000 - 100,000). Virginia's Blue Ridge has earned an adventurous reputation by visitors and locals alike for having a perfect combination of outdoor-related adventures for all ages.
