I grew up in Roanoke, and spent my entire childhood making visits to the top of Mill Mountain to visit both the Mill Mountain Zoo and the Mill Mountain Star. While on our honeymoon, my new bride and I visited my childhood hometown, and our first stop (after checking into the Black Lantern Inn Bed & Breakfast - see my review!) was the Star! It had been 26 years since I'd been "home", and the star itself was in great shape, but the surrounding park was a peasant surprise. The remodeled (to me, anyway) overlook was spacious andprovided an outstanding view of the Valley! THe downtown skyline has changed a bit, but was still a blast from the past! And we had fun capturing ourselves on the webcam on the Star's website!
