Roanoke Leads Votes in Magazine Contest

Roanoke, VA - Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine will be naming the top mountain towns in our area, and that's good news for the Star City.

While the results aren't official, Roanoke was leading in the "Best Mid-Sized Mountain Town" category with 34 % of the vote.

Asheville was in second. Lynchburg got just 1 % of the vote.

"Sounds like we came out on top. So we are very enthusiastic about the fact that our visitors, and our locals, said, 'Hey, we are a great place to vote for.'. Being able to come out over our competition I think is really good for all of us," said Landon Howard from the Roanoke Valley Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine will officially announce the winners in its November 2012 issue.
