We checked out the famous Star on the Mountain! Awesome view of the city! Brought back my childhood memories of visits to Roanoke!

I'm from Roanoke and have been the Star dozens if not hundreds of times. It's one of my favorite places anywhere. It's not exciting or anything. It's just cool to stand in front of a giant, 70 year old neon star and take in a view of the entire Roanoke Valley. It's beautiful at night and romantic if it isn't... More

Try and wait until twilight, then drive a short ten minutes up the mountain to the overlook to find the largest illuminated star in the country accompanied by a panoramic view of Roanoke. It is a must see and it is free of charge.

This is the best place to view the entire city and all the surrounding mountains. I suggest going once during the day and then again at night.

Worth the drive to watch the sunset with near 180 degree views. Nice photo ops of star and overlook of city. Can get crowded on weekends and holidays.

We were told about the zoo at Mill Mountain by some locals. It is a very nice little zzo and well worth a visit!

The star is way at the top of mill mountain. We wen at night and it is very impressive. The city view was amazing. Here's a hint on the better picture. If you are with someone else and each have a phone the flashlight feature to keep light on you then take a selfie. The star has a web cam... More
