Welcome to Radford, Virginia

Surrounded on three sides by the New River, Radford is the New River City. Home to Radford University and a short drive to VA Tech and New River Community College, Radford is centrally located off I-81 between exits 109 and 105 and has easy access to the entire New River Valley.

Our charming City offers a hometown feel with plenty of things to do.  We invite you to ‘find it in Radford’!
