And depending some areas and time of night, Noke an be just as bad as any city. But as long as you aren't up to no good, you should be fine in Roanoke.
You wrote Roanoke has about 300,000 people, and it doesn't, the metropolitan area of Roanoke has about 300,000 residents. Roanoke proper has about 98,000 residents. I live in Richmond city and I knew Richmond is quite larger than Roanoke.
Although Roanoke is a nice city, it's not as large as you have posted.
The metropolitan area of Richmond is about 1.3million people, and the city proper is 218,000 people. However, the demographics of Richmond are changing at an alarming rate, and the surrounding/suburbs are growing quite fast.
