Roanoke, Virginia, isn't the one you may have heard of on TV's American Horror Story, where the inhabitants disappeared mysteriously. This Roanoke remains the "Star of the South," and is a bustling town with a lot of charm. Drive into the city, and you'll be drawn to the Center in the Square, the beating heart of Roanoke, with plenty of cultural interest at the City Market. Get there early for amazing local produce. Alternatively, if nature is more your thing, then why not take the opportunity to hike part of the Appalachian Trail just outside of town on your weekend trip? The huge illuminated Mill Mountain Star overlooks the city and gives Roanoke its nickname. Climb up to it and enjoy the magnificent view from its overlook, with the lights of Roanoke twinkling below, before venturing back into town to finish your weekend break with a glass or two at one of the town's superb wineries.
