Many reunion groups have long been attracted to smaller cities for the ease of traveling to and from, reasonable costs, and quaint atmospheres. It’s hard to find another city that checks those boxes, offers unique experiences for veteran reunions, and has reunion-friendly hotels than Roanoke. Sitting at the southern tip of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Parkway, Roanoke offers easy access to some of the best vistas you’ll find in the Appalachian Mountains. Virginia’s Blue Ridge is also home to many local wineries, vineyards, breweries, and distilleries. Visit the nearby National D-Day Memorial for a ceremony or remembrance, and explore the rich history of Southwestern Virginia.
