Can Anyone suggest day trip from Roanoke VA (Max 4hrs away)

I want to take my mom a short day trips Aug 21-28 but she can't sit for more than 4hrs - 4.5 max in a car and can not walk much once she is there. Open to any suggestions.

Thanks

Salem, VA

What are your mom's interests? There's a lot to do within a 4 hour radius of Roanoke. Knowing her interests might help narrow down some of the suggestions.

The Virginia Tourism website (Virginia.org) is an excellent resource for events and short trips. For example, I plugged in both the Shenandoah Valley Region and Aug 21-28 for musical events and was given everything from Bluegrass to Jazz to Big Band and more within a short drive from Roanoke:

You might also find the Virginia Accessibilty Guide to be quite useful:

I hope you both have a fabulous week! :-)

Explore NN had a good suggestion and made me think of how much I enjoyed a visit to Floyd Va for their Friday Night Music. It's only a scenic hour drive from Roanoke, you can park in one of the lots near the Country Store, pay $5 admission and experience great local musicians and cloggers for hours. They are even on the street singing and playing. Get there early for a seat in the Country Store.
