I have to say, i just moved to Roanoke VA from arizona, and i have never seen so many hillbillys in my life. there is no night life here at all, everything seems to be backdated twenty years or so. if you want a good place check out raleigh NC. im moving there as soon as my lease is up.

Raleigh is nothing but a POS city full of snobby stuck up people who think that they are better than everyone.

It;s like any city. It has good areas and bad. If you like t he mountains and a slower pace it's great. I live in metro atlanta and I despise it. Too much crime, too many people. In Roanoke you are only minutes away from some real peaceful, gorgeous nature.I hope to retire near there but not in the city.

I lived in Roanoke in the 70's and we had more shopping and nicer people. Better restaurants. Everyone I talk to say they go out of town to shop for anything. So do I. I'm moving back to northern VA.

I'm a Virginian and I agree. Roanoke does not have it. Salaries are not up to par and rent and mortgage not equal to salaries. I would say the worst management ever in the state of VA.

Roanoke is full of hoodlums and wanna be thugs. Another once fair city going black. Lock your doors and carry a gun at all times, even while in the shower.

Odd responses. The City Market area has numerous restaurants the city is safe save for the few bad areas and the real estate is very inexpensive. Your money goes far here and everything is ten minutes away.

Saquen hit it on the head (not pun intended). Lots of lickers and lots of bandits too. Read the paper. Plenty of shootings and stabbings. Safest part of Roanoke is the jail.

Roanoke USED to be a Good city. It's gone down the drain. the "Yard" used to be the place to be.
