The Roanoke Regional Partnership initially created Roanoke Outside (RO) to showcase why the region that surrounds Roanoke Valley is one of the best outdoor destinations east of the Mississippi. RO's mission is to make outdoor activity and environmental stewardship a core component of our community's lifestyle by promoting "conservation through recreation."
RO's website is a great resource for anything outdoors and outlines the vast opportunities within the region. From wineries to whitewater, breweries to biking and zip lines to zoos, there's something for just about every level of outdoor adventure buried in the RO website.
What I particularly appreciate is RO Director Pete Eshelman's weekly Get Outside newsletter. Sent via email, Pete's newsletter is a regular update on events, outdoor festivals, trails and current outdoor news.
To subscribe to the weekly newsletter, visit Get Outside and share your email with RO in exchange for some exiting tips on adventuring in the Roanoke Valley.
