A visit to Charlottesville isn’t complete without a stop at the Downtown Mall, a vibrant collection of more than 120 specialty shops and 30 restaurants (many with outdoor cafes) housed in the historic buildings on and around old Main Street. Comprising eight blocks of brick paving and lined with magnificent tall trees it is one of the most beautiful and successful pedestrian malls in the nation.
Convenient parking in nearby garages and parking lots, as well as free trolley service connecting the Downtown Mall to the University of Virginia along West Main Street make a visit to the downtown easy for visitors of all ages.
