The top five weekend activities to indulge in Roanoke are well known and any local would be able to tell you about them, but if you don’t have a lot of time and just want to visit one landmark that might just be somewhat representative of the city as a whole, that landmark would be the Mill Mountain Star.
The great thing about this landmark is that it’s visible from a great distance which means that you can take a look at it as you are driving towards it and watch it get bigger and bigger.
