A 100-foot-high star atop a mountain and visible from miles around welcomes you to the "Star City of the South", a great beginning for your weekend getaway to this city rich in culture, history, fun and entertainment. Close to the star is the Mill Mountain Zoological Park, where you'll see the endangered Snow Leopard, Amur Tiger and Red Wolf, along with over 40 other animal species. The Center in the Square is the city's cultural hub, where you can catch a Broadway-quality show at the Mill Mountain Theater or hear the celebrated Roanoke Symphony. Museums are everywhere, and whether your interest lies in art, history, science or transport, you'll find a museum to match it. The Harrison Museum of African-American Culture honours achievements of African-Americans and includes an impressive African exhibit. For underground delights, visit the Dixie Caverns for a 45-minute tour of breathtaking cave formations, after which you can browse through pottery, rock and mineral and other shops. There's something to keep you occupied and entertained every minute in this environmentally-conscious, friendly and very welcoming Virginia city.
