travelling from new york

I am an Englishman in New York on vacation in June 2013, for various reasons I would like to spend 2 or 3 days in Roanoke and vicinity

Any suggestions please on routing from NYC to Roanoke and back?

Air, rail or hire car? Any recommendations for the best option?

Trains- the closest you can get from NY to Roanoke is Lynchburg, Virginia, about 70 minutes drive northeast.

So I'd say rail is not your best option.

Roanoke does have an airport.

I'd go with the airlines... roanokeairport.com/Home/…RouteMap.aspx

Thanks JT. Have decided to travel one way with a rental car then will return to NYC by air from Roanoke Municipal airport.

Thanks again for your advice
