Visit the trademark Star in Roanoke: If the weather is tolerable, you can take a soccer ball to get some exercise and keep everyone warm!
A coffee shop:
Sometimes it is just too cold to go outside. If that’s the case, check out a local coffee shop for a warm atmosphere and a hot drink.
If you are more of a cold weather person you can always get ice cream! The store won’t be busy in the winter and places like Ben and Jerry’s and Coldstone offer the option to mix it up a bit.
The Cascades in Pembroke provides a great energy outlet for kids and a great way to prepare the health nuts for a holiday feast.
This difficult hike begins at The Dragon’s Tooth trailhead which is directly off Virginia 311 west of Catawba. It is not recommended for inexperienced hikers though it is a wonderful trek.
