Mill mountain star is easy to get to, free and a neat overlook. They have a live webcam so you can see yourself online. They have a neat park area, trails, rocks to climb on. Good spot for a picnic or for sunset viewing. Combine with a trip to the Mill Mountain Zoo.

Fab view of the whole Roanoke Valley. The winding road to the top of the hill is worth it when you get tot he top and take in the view.

Any visit to Roanoke, VA must include going to the Star! It's a very nice place to view most of the Roanoke valley.

Just 10 minutes from downtown with a great view of the downtown area and views to the north and northwest. Ideal for a picnic. Can be a little noisy when kids are present. Great view at night of the airport and the sequenced flasher of runway 34.

This is such a nice park so close to the city. Fabulous view of the city for photos. In spring it is especially pretty due to the flowers. There is a nice walk through flower garden as well.

If you just want a view of the city from high above, take the quick ride out of town. The viewing platform under the star gives you a panorama of Roanoke. It's similar to other overlooks, but if you don't see the Roanoke Star you've missed a landmark. At night you can see it lit for miles. If you like... More
