It has everything nearby, grocery, banks, dentists, etc. However, it's not very diverse and most of the people in this community are posh.
Awesome opportunities for employment!

I work in public relations and advertising, so though there are many opportunities in Roanoke, VA. For me personally it would be more beneficial to move to a larger city for work.
