Roanoke

Getting Here and Around

There is a regional airport in Roanoke (www.roanokeairport.com) or you can fly into Richmond, Charlottesville, or Washington, DC, and drive from there. About 50 mi south of Lexington on I-81, Roanoke is the largest city west of Richmond and also one of the largest accessible from the Blue Ridge Parkway. To access the downtown area, including the Visitor Information Center, Center in the Square, the Civic Center and other major attractions, you'll want to take Exit 143 at the tri-level exchange where I-581 and Route 220 intersect with I-81.
