Roanoke was a cattle center in its early days. Today "city folk" are close to outnumbering the cattle. Roanoke was named the "Unique Dining Capital of Texas", so be sure and try out some of the city's 40 restaurants which mainly populate the thriving downtown area. And while you're there, stop by the Visitor Center and Museum to learn more about Roanoke's colorful past. The museum is in the original 1886 Silver Spur Saloon. (And you thought a name like that was only in the movies, didn't you?)

Located on the railroad, Roanoke was a cattle center in its early days. The town had two saloons, a horse trough, and a water tank - all located on the center of what is now Oak Street. What more could you need? Roanoke's prime location halfway between Fort Worth and Denton has been discovered by "city folk" who are now close to outnumbering the cattle. Roanoke's low crime rate, country ambiance, largelots, and easy access to Metroplex amenities is such a draw for "city slickers" that the area is on the brink of becoming a vast economic entity.
Old Meets New in Roanoke
Old meets new at Roanoke's state of the art Recreation Center. The 38,000 square foot facility offers everything from racquetball and fitness programs to a children's activity center with billiards table,air hockey, and pump it up arcade. The new town soccer complex and baseball fields regularly hosts league play while the city library and Community Center offer regular programs for children, teens and adults. And though the city does have a community pool, Hawaiian Falls Waterpark has now come to town. It's billed as the "world's largest aqua play structure", and features Water World, an interactive six story high playground and a 16,000 square foot wave pool.
Roanoke Looking to Continue Growth
It appears 2015 will bring even more growth to "The Unique Dining Capital of Texas", both in things to do as well as new home subdivisions. A state of the art skate park, plus restaurants and business including On The Border, Krispy Kreme and a Cinemark movie theatre are opening in 2015. Roanoke home buyers are finding it more and more attractive to dine, shop and have fun locally.
Of course, the retail is just following the growth of new housing developments in this metroplex "hot spot". Several new home subdivisions, such as Fairway Ranch and Highlands Glen, started construction in 2014 offering opportunites for home buyers that will extend into the next few years. Other neighborhoods, including Briarwyck and Chadwick Farms, are nearer build out.
