Civic Center is located near the downtown and same time near the airport. Big shows and events are very well conducted here.

This is the historic market area, they have farmers come there on weekends or during the week to sell their vegetables, fruit and other variety of things, have little shops and one of the best places to get a hot dog. In the old days the old market building was a great place to hangout, especially when I was growing in the area.

We have enjoyed our afternoons at the Center in the Square in Roanoke. Complete with a farmer's market, there are shops and eateries galore. Some good, some average, some unique, some not so much. You will most likely find your taste without walking too far, and the farmer's market offers a nice local touch, whether it be a beaded necklace or fresh produce. Fun for the entire family, I'd say, and there's a nice museum within a reasonable walking distance. Oh...and we always love an Orvis store. There's one here.
