Do you like watching trains traverse the charming streets of cities in real time? Here for you our Roanoke live cam! Located in the picturesque Roanoke Valley, in Virginia, this vibrant city is known for its stunning landscapes, rich cultural heritage, and bustling railway activity. Originally known as Big Lick due to salt deposits in the area, Roanoke's history dates back to its establishment as a town in 1852. In 1882, the city adopted the name 'Roanoke,' believed to have originated from an Algonquian word meaning 'shell money,' a reference to the river that bisects the city and the county. Roanoke's strategic location in the Blue Ridge Mountains, within the Roanoke Valley between Maryland and Tennessee, has made it a vital transportation hub for western Virginia.
