Christiansburg has a rich history of playing host to out-of-town guests. From our early years as a popular stopover for settlers pushing westward along the Wilderness Trail, to our more recent distinction as the retail hub of Southwest Virginia and an overnight preference for visitors traveling to the New River Valley for business, education, or leisure, Christiansburg has always been ready for your arrival.
Thirteen national-chain hotels, two historic bed and breakfasts, and 76 restaurants are nestled throughout the town to provide a comfortable and enjoyable visit for our guests. Christiansburg is known regionally as “Downtown New River Valley” due to our direct proximity to Interstate 81, vast retail centers, attractive downtown area, and centralized location between nearby Blacksburg (Virginia Tech) and Radford (Radford University).
We’re confident that you’ll find our friendly residents and welcoming community live up to our Town Motto - “Progressive Small Town Living at its Best.”
