I was in Roanoke, Virginia the last couple of days and arrived back in Dallas yesterday evening (thank you very much US Airways).
It really is a beautiful town, with “mountains” entirely surrounding it. The city itself reminded me of the mining town out of October Sky though it seems to have made a transformation to an urban area.
I stayed at the wonderful Hotel Roanoke which sits in an historic building and is where they hold the Miss Virginia Pageant.
All-in-all it was a good trip, minus the fact that US Airways did not have a single flight that was on time my entire trip and they proceeded to blame ATC for the delays… Yeah, nice try US Airways…
