About the New River Valley

New River Valley

The New River Valley, just a few minutes away from the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Appalachian Trail, nestled between the picturesque Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains — with Montgomery County, Virginia as its center, offers the finest in all facets of living.

Recently designated as a Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA), Montgomery County is home to 94,392* residents and Virginia Tech, the largest state university and a top 50 research university. Where small town charm and big city amenities abound, you have the best of both worlds.  *Based upon 2010 Census data

From our world class dining, fine shopping and cultural activities, to a beautiful rural setting, and unique recreational opportunities, the U.S.’s oldest river, the New, gently oversees the good life in the New River Valley.
