Blacksburg, VA

Nestled between the Alleghany and Blue Ridge Mountains and along the New River, Blacksburg offers an abundance of beauty and outdoor activities, including hiking, biking, fishing, kayaking, caving, rock climbing and golfing. After work bike rides on the nearby Huckleberry Trail and group hikes among Torc'rs are common. Combined with the plethora of resources for autonomous vehicle testing and continued state support, it's easy to see why Virginia has been our home for 15 years.
