I have visited here a couple of times during the summer. Loved SML. I'm on here looking to make friends. I like anything from breweries to the parks and trying new things. I hear Elmwood Park has some nice concerts as well.
Welcome to the Star City! I have wondered if it would be fun to have a City-Data local meetup sometime! TN Lily. Welcome, Joe! There are many local groups and activities. Do you have a sport or hobby you like? For example, you could volunteer at Mill Mountain Theater. Or one of the biking clubs. Thanks for replying.
A city local map meetup sounds like a great idea. Thanks for the ideas.

I like the Breweries out in Roanoke and Salem. I heard Parkway is good. Maybe I will try that. As other members have noted, if you could post a little information about yourself we could point you in the right direction.
Roanoke friends meeting
This is a great area for outdoor activities and mine include mountain biking at Carvins Cove, Greenway biking or kayaking. Not sure if you have interest in any of these activities but if so, stop in at Roanoke Mountain Adventure and speak with Dan or James. They offer local trips, with equipment, bikes, kayaks, paddleboards, canoes, etc along with instructors to teach you the basics. They also sponsor weekly rides that people of all ages and usually they finish up meeting at a brewery for a social.
We have also moved here fairly recently from NY and love the mountains and all that this area has to offer. We spend more time in the gym during these few months but also enjoy volunteering at Habitat for Humanity and Trail building at Carvins Cove.
Be patient, you will make friends by default just by living here and being involved in day to day life. Thanks for the response.
I am not much into outdoors stuff but am sure I will make friends as I go. My nephew has lived in Roanoke for eight years from the north as well and says it is not easy to make friends in Roanoke. I hope to have a different experience though.
I appreciate all of you chiming in. Maybe one day we can somewhere for coffee or something. Have a great day everybody. There are places like Wasena Tap House, I think that have trivia nights. Sometimes the weeknights earlier in the week are even better for that as the Friday and Saturday night crowds can get a little crazy! The CoLab in Roanoke's Grandin Village sometimes sponsors various events - it is a shared workspace place and can certainly be a great place to start finding kindred souls!
Hi Joe! Wasena Tap house is great! Our family moved here from Charlotte about 4 years ago.
We now have older kids. My husband and I work together.
So, for us, it's been a little hard to make friends here. I think it's mainly because we work a lot. We still have met some great people though. I play on a "low-key" co-ed softball team in the Fall and Spring seasons. We're a big mix of people.
Wasena Park That's how I've met a lot of people. We have a lot of fun!! Play 2 nights a week If you play and are interested we may take you on? I'll double check, but I think we need a guy or 2! Oh and I like the idea of a city-data meetup. Hi all You are very nice to take the time out to welcome me.
I am going to try some of the breweries. My neighbor Mike has the hotdog stand in the Market bld. He was saying Soaring Ridge is good. Anyone that would like to me up for coffee, beer whatever. I am easy and fun to be around. Please register to post and access all features of our very popular forum. It is free and quick. Additional giveaways are planned.
