By leaving the comfort of your own neighborhood and venturing out to see what the rest of Roanoke......and our neighborhoods..... are REALLY about........you will quickly discover just how unique each neighborhood is, and at the same time, learn that each is filled with warm and friendly people who care about their neighborhood - just as you care about yours! So venture out, meet neighbors in other neighborhoods and experience why all of Roanoke's neighborhoods are places we are each proud to call home!
