The New River Valley is where many people call home. It is filled with beautiful landscapes, nationally ranked universities, hundreds of small businesses, and amazing history. The first thing that may catch your eye are the many mountains that surround the area, you can see them all atop the peak of Bald Knob hiking trail. Amongst the mountains you can tour the two universities: Virginia Tech and Radford University. Entertainment is also a key aspect of the NRV from concerts at The Lyric, movies at StarLight, and drinks at the Palisades. It’s no wonder the New River Valley is home for so many.
