    • Shenandoah NP without a car

      Shenandoah Oct 17, 2016 at 11:58 AM

      Hi ! Im travelling from Washington DC, Id like to camp and hike in Shenandoah NP. There are some buses, trains, amtrak etc going to the skyline area, but I can't decide which city precisely I should choose as a start for my discovery of the area.
      I know that I can easily find a camping there, but I admit that passing by one of the visitor centers would be great before I start hiking !
      I haven't planned to rent a car, so I wonder if you know any entrance easy to reach by foot or by bus.
      Which of the 4 entrances do you think is the closest to beautiful siteseeing and can be reached without driving ?
      Thanks a lot for your anwers !


    • Autumn Colors

      I am considering a trip to Roanoke, VA in late September. Will that be too early in the season to see the leaves changing color?

      Thank you!

      How to get there...

      by baldurontour Online Now Feb 20, 2011 at 4:26 AM

      Hi VTlers,

      I need some help, as it seemes difficult to find reliable information on the internet.

      What would be your best suggestion to get to Roanke from Germany?
      There is no direct flight, so what combination will be most reasonable?

      Fly Frankfurt New York then onwards?
      Fly Frankfurt Washington...?

      Thank you for any kind of suggestion or personal experience.

      Good Place For a VT Meet in Roanoke?

      by Karnubawax Online Now Sep 25, 2008 at 2:17 AM

      Hi y'all,

      Don't know how many active VTers are in the area... but I'll be coming into town just for a day in October, then heading down to Martinsville for the NASCAR race. Can anyone suggest a good spot for a VT Meet on a Saturday afternoon/night?



    • Accomodations or lodging in Roanoke, Virginia

      by Turlbo Online Now Jul 19, 2007 at 3:21 AM

      First of all I am so glad to see Roanoke listed here, there was absolutely nothing on other sites. In a little more than two weeks I plan on visiting there. I would like to know if someone could suggest any places to stayover in this town? Most of what is on this site either seems to be a little more than what I wanted to pay or it does not say enough about things such as location and what is offered. I am thinking more along the lines of youth hostels, guest houses, or perhaps dormitories. Now I was glad to read on here that most of the places in town can be reached by walking and that there is local bus service. This is because I will not be driving and arriving either by bus or train. While there I do have reseach to do at places like the library and historical society. I also plan on visiting the Transportation Museum. Now I would not pay a little more for something like a guest house as long as it is in this area.

      The air up there

      by achoo59 Online Now Aug 25, 2003 at 10:58 PM

      I keep hearing that beautiful Roanoke has a serious air quality problem with ozone and possibly other things. Can anyone comment? What's causing the problem, and is it getting better or worse? Thanks!
