Best things to do in Charlottesville

University
“The university that TJ built. We are not biased or anything, but it’s the best university in the world. (We understand there are arguments for and against this claim.) But, truly, if you haven’t visited UVA, you should. The Lawn and Rotunda are historic and you’ll find them very beautiful and interesting, whether or not you are a ‘Hoo. Bring a picnic and a frisbee and hang out on the Lawn, gazing at the architectural genius of our third President. When you’re done, walk down to The Corner and enjoy the used bookstores, tons of restaurants and coffee shops, and soak in the vibe of this vibrant college town. We love Roots (yummy healthy bowls), Boylan Heights (grass-fed burgers), and Mellow Mushroom for pizza. ”

Einkaufszentrum
“It’s not a mall in the traditional sense- it’s more of an historic city street that’s been blocked off to traffic and lined with bricks- and it’s super fun and a must-do to come down here and stroll. You’ll find tons of eateries, and it’s a safe place to let kids run since there are no cars. There’s always something going on, from street performers to live music (catch Fridays After Five down at the pavilion) to interesting people watching. Get ice cream at Chap’s or gelato at Splendora’s and soak up the lively Cville vibe. ”

Akademisches Hochschulgebäude
“Go see UVA- particularly the Rotunda and the Lawn. The Rotunda is beautiful and awe-inspiring, and it stands at the head of a gorgeous stretch of old trees and lawn perfect for kids to run around and play frisbee while you attempt to interest them in the myriad architectural styles Thomas Jefferson integrated into the collection of grand faculty homes and student rooms that line The Lawn. Then walk down to The Corner District to soak up the undergrad vibe- there’s tons of eateries and shops. You can pick up some UVA gear (go ‘Hoos!) at Mincer’s. ”

Store
“It has a great big sound-enhancing tent covering an intelligently designed seating area and lawn. You can watch the show standing right in front of the stage, sitting under the tent in a chair, or lounging on the lawn. I personally love to picnic on the lawn either by bringing in outside food (which is, amazingly, allowed!) or partaking in the food trucks inside the pavilion itself. The Pavillion brings in some great acts so make sure you check out their schedule.”
