A place I didn’t expect would hook me is Roanoke. There’s a good bit of railroad history here as well as a nice downtown area and hiking nearby. A better place for a low key layover could not be had!
Only the best Mexican Restaurant in town, Alejandros!
It seems silly but every time we came to Roanoke, I really looked forward to this!
