Downtown Blacksburg

It's not on your's where you're going!

Blacksburg,VA is nestled on a plateau between the Blue Ridge and Alleghany mountains. Home to about 42,600 local residents, the town is considered small by most any standard, but don’t let its size or location fool you.

Established in 1798 and now Virginia’s largest town, Blacksburg lies within Montgomery County, which has a population of some 95,000.

A hub for arts, history, culture and technology, Downtown Blacksburg is a place where “Buy. Eat. Live. Local” is more than a slogan; it’s a way of life. From the bustling Farmers Market, open Wednesdays and Saturdays year-round, to the historic Lyric Theatre, Downtown Blacksburg is a place where locals, students, and visitors mingle, shop, and dine. With a variety of restaurants, and plenty of outdoor café-style seating there’s something to satisfy every taste bud.

Virginia Tech is connected to downtown so it is walkable from the main campus. Within the original 16 blocks of the incorporated town there are numerous art galleries and museums, it’s easy to turn a stroll through downtown into an art and history walk. Plan your trip to the area any time of year and experience the culture of Blacksburg!

Go to Montgomery County, Virginia

Virginia’s story continues at the intersection of I-81 and Highway 460 in Montgomery County. One can still envision the Great Road of yesteryear as it runs alongside rolling hills, the New River, and the magnificent Blue Ridge Mountains of Southwest Virginia.

The cheers let you know you’re close as the Hokie sightings increase with each mile. History evolves into innovation as new infrastructure peacefully coexists with grazing cattle. The sounds of nature surround you throughout the peaceful countryside. As beautiful vistas easily transition to bustling towns filled with local proprietors and national brands, you instinctively know it is time to Go to Town!
