I'm relocating from northern Michigan to Roanoke Rapids for work and I'd like to know a little more about the area. Yes, I'm aware it's a small town. I try to be a positive thinker so I don't want to hear someone rip on it if I don't have to. I grew up in a small town and it's very easy to do, I know.

I know there's a coffee shop, some trails, and a local gym. I'd mostly like to know about the weather, people, politics, and outdoor life. Also, are there any good local bars that just do food, drinks, and sports on TV?

I can not believe that you did not get any replies! If you must move there I would suggest that you buy on Roanoke Avenue or Hamilton Street. It is a different way of life there. Perhaps you will become active in the community and give them a much needed boost. They have way too much welfare! Young men walk the streets with pit bulls on chains. Mayor Drewery Beal is as fine of a man as they make em. But social ills facing this town are huge! Vester automotive there was fined for fraud. I worry about the kids who are having babies, and the overall lack of morality.

The motto of Roanoke Rapids seems to be...if it feels good do it! I am from the old school and believe that smart decisions = a smart life & dumb decisions = destroyed lives.
