My husband, Chris, has savored a lot of flaky pastry in his search for the best almond croissant in the United States. He found his new favorite in Virginia’s Blue Ridge region at a café in Roanoke.
During a recent stay we also found excellent hiking with mountain views, a giant limestone arch once owned by Thomas Jefferson, a walkable downtown, fantastic meals and an ice cold martini at the bar of an historic hotel built in 1882.
We stayed in another historic hotel, The Liberty Trust, that was once a bank building from 1910 and had fantastic views of Roanoke.
