    Is this Blacksburg , Va, the college town of Virginia Tech? Plenty of nothing to do there. I roam the campus and grab a few eats and leave unless there is a game or someone you want to see there. It's a university town now.

    I've only been there to drop off or pick up a student (or to tour the campus before she became a student), but Jefferson National Forest is nearby.

    If your pet knew you well, I would highly recommend the Blacksburg Dog Park on Toms Creek. blogs.roanoke.com/theburgs/f...

    But since your pet will not be familiar with you, take him for a walk on the beautiful Huckleberry Trail OR over at Duck Pond on the Virginia Tech Campus. Be sure to bring bags for scooping up poop as all facilities are strict about this. Most of the sidewalk cafes in Blacksburg are puppy friendly.
