    I had a one night stay in Blacksburg and arrived in mid afternoon . After checking in at hotel, I found the Smithfield Plantation. What a gem! It’s a self guided tour and gives you a small, but accurate view of life in the late 1700- 1800’s. Not only do you get an idea of the owner’s family but a glimpse of slave life. The lady who introduced me to the house was quite knowledgeable and the young man in the ticket/museum shop were friendly and welcoming. This does not take a long time to visit but is well your time. It’s very near Virginia Tech grounds.

    This garden is definitely worth an hour of your time and is free! Beautiful and varied plants and trees, two koi ponds and some interesting sculpture, especially the "Maid of the Mud" by Frank Lloyd Wright. It's a perfect place to wander or to sit and rest and contemplate. There are many benches and places to sit and just enjoy.

    The view of the mountains and the service was tremendous. The staff was very friendly. They had a wide variety of beers to select from. While we didn't like all of them, some of them were very good. They had a limited food menu but it was outstanding.

    There was no air conditioning but the temperature was comfortable.

    Fantastic auditorium at Virginia Tech campus, Blacksburg. It is state of the art with regard to seating, sound systems and viewing. Large capacity hall for symphonies, cultural and other performances & celebrity talks.

    I love this vineyard, it was beautiful. The wine and beer tasted great. I felt welcomed by the staff and owners who were always ready to talk to us about the wine and how they make it. We walked all around the estate. The bed and breakfast was my favorite part. The room was decorated with so many details and very clean. The bath tub with jets was very relaxing. The deck had a beautiful view. The breakfast was homemade from farm fresh ingredients. They made us feel at home in their home.

    Years past I have ran the 3.2 Remembrance Run. This was virtual, due to Covid, so I greatly appreciated the Memorial to honor the victims.

    Unfortunately the house was closed for tours the day we stopped by due to employees needing to monitor parking for the football game. But the very kind lady who saw me peeking forlornly through the window graciously opened the door and showed us some photos of the place and told us a little about the house's history. Her affection for the place was palpable, and I can't wait to come back to tour the place properly. It's simply gorgeous on the outside, and from what I could see of the interior it too was beautiful.

    Visiting Blacksburg and my cousin and her husband. We went to the Lyric theater to see the movie that was playing there. Not only did we love the movie, the update of the theater was lovely to see! I love old movie theaters and when they are updated and refurbished, oh my! So much beauty compared to the new theaters that are built today! Very good support from the Blacksburg community too! Nice to see :)

    This is an excellent park for a family reunion or any fun get together. There is plenty of parking. Some shade trees are right there. There is a play area for the kids with swings and a slide. There is a ball field and a basketball goal located there, also. Grills to cook on. Men and women restrooms are at the end of the the shelter. The shelter is fairly big with picnic benches for seating. It is one of the nicest parks in Blacksburg..

    I went to the Farmers Market on a beautiful Saturday morning. The environments was great and there were so much variety of stands and there were people and animals everywhere. The items were reasonably priced and all very local. Would recommend for any age as there are items for everyone. Great experience to have in Blacksburg.

    Glade road growing is an organic farm. Fresh produce is sold there itself. Run by family and has good clientele who are health conscious and organic lovers. Occasionally they also serve food and drinks at this farm.

    I had previously reviewed 4 years ago, the last time we visited for ACC baseball. Then, it was a quaint and comfortable baseball park but not a serious park or representative of a team that wanted to compete. Fast forward to 2019 and VT has clearly invested to upgrade facilities and the improvement is obvious. First, you have to pay to attend games. 4 years ago, you just walked in. There is better seating and great field views but family and student friendly areas with stone walls down the 3rd base side were retained and provides a great local touch.

    Blacksburg is a beautiful area already and any trip here is rewarded with great views and hospitality but now attending a baseball series feels like an event instead of just an activity.

    Definitely recommend.
