As I mentioned earlier this week we are taking a family road trip this weekend. We love to to jump in the car and go venture to new places. That is one great thing about living in the Carolina’s, we are so centrally located to take road trips that are NOT that far.
So this weekend heading to Roanoke Virginia. Anyone been there, or live there?
Sure looks beautiful. Of course a lot of history, antique shops and cool sites to see.
Sure hoping we see some pretty Foliage on our way there. It is about a 3 ½ hour road trip.
If anyone can recommend something cool, we would love that. We of course have brochures and have a few fun things planned.
My husband has already researched cool dives to eat at and coffee shops to hit.
Have a great weekend everyone. And thanks for stopping by and as always your lovely comments.
Just another reminder there will be NO GARAGE SALEN party today. See you next week though. Maybe I will find something cool in Virginia to share with you all.
Have fun. I've been to Roanoke twice but I was really young. Have a safe trip!
I hope you have a great time.
My husband is from Roanoke and we have lived there. We're still there pretty often visiting family.
There's lots of neat stuff to do there.
It's a great place!!
Have a great time, Dear One!! We've just returned from Williamsburg but I've never been to where you're going! Take lots of pictures.
Be a sweetie,
It sounds like you are going to have a great time. I miss the days of weekend trips with the kids. Have fun and be safe. I am looking forward to your pictures!
Gonna miss the party, but hope that you have a great time. I've been close to Roanoke, but never to. Can't wait to see what you get into, take lots of pics!!

I have never been to Roanoke, but that first lake shot looks amazing! Maybe you will find some great yard sales while you are there! And that diner looks like a great place to stop, have a fun trip!

Roanoke is within a hour of where I grew up in a tiny town called Bassett! As a child we went there all the time! I don't know much about the city now but the Blue Ridge Parkway is very close to Roanoke. If you want to have a nature day this is the place to be. Great hiking spots! Breathtakingly Beautiful! Especially this time of the year if the trees still have their color! Can't wait to hear all about it!
Have a great weekend!
sounds like so much fun 🙂 Hope you have a wondeful time with the family!
Have a wonderful time. I've never been to Roanoke, but it certainly looks beautiful. La
Have a fun and safe trip!
I have been to Roanoke but it has been a while. I bet you will find all kinds of fun things to do.
Have a fun trip! It already looks like a beautiful place!
Have a great time!! We have never been there. Take lots of pictures and have a wonderful time 🙂
It looks like it is to be a beautiful weekend.
How fun, Debbie and it looks beautiful. I haven't been there so I appreciate these pictures. Have a safe and nice trip!…..Christine
Yes I have been to Roanoke. My husband's great aunt lived there and we visited once while we lived in Northern Virginia. Roanoke is lovely, with a pretty setting and a charming small town feel. Have a great weekend!

I am so jealous and happy for you at the same time! I've never been there but always wanted too. I am sure you will see lots of pretty foliage along the way. Cannot wait to see and hear about your trip when you return. Have a great time!
Looks like a great fun trip! I love the first photo best!
Have a great trip Debbie! I am going to Roanoke next month when my parents come to visit! I haven't been there yet, but it's only about 2 hours away. There is a beautiful HUGE lake not far from there called Smith Mountain Lake, it is incredible! If you want to see pretty leaves, that might be the place to do it. We have had a really, really dry summer and so the leaves are just starting to turn, and the colors are not as spectacular as they have been in the past. Enjoy your trip!
Hi Debbie, I lived in Roanoke back in 1975 for about 4 months. I hope you enjoy your trip!
It looks amazing. I love traveling, but I also love other folks' vacation pictures–seriously. Can't wait to see the shots of your trip! Have fun!
Have a great weekend. I've always thought Roanoke would be a fun place to visit.
I was there … once, about 15 years ago … it was beautiful … the weather was good, we went up to the star … and visited lovely heritage sights … it was good!
Have a safe trip. It sounds like a perfect weekend getaway. Texas is so large that it takes a full day just to get out of the state. 😉
Enjoy the family time. ~ Sarah
Keep Calm and Decorate
Hope you are having a great time!
