We had an evening to spend walking around during our vacation, so we decided to visit the Historic Downtown Mall. We didn't exactly have any particular store or restaurant we wanted to see. By the time we got there it was evening and we saw a few shops still open and a bunch of restaurants to choose from. We didn't... More

Stopped thru here on our way elsewhere and was pleasantly surprised as to what we found. I guess it is called the downtown mall area and there is a great variety of food and shopping w/vendors selling their wares on the street. Has a great vibe to it and if/when I am ever in the area again, I will be... More

We enjoyed the downtown mall one evening and morning. In the evening, we got there later on around 6PM on a Thursday night. The one drawback is most of the stores were closed or closing. It was a fantastic evening...perfect weather to be out walking and most of the stores were closed. The stores we did visit were wonderful and... More

This place is fantastic for food and shopping. Everyone we encountered was very friendly and eager to tell us about their products. Go with the kids during the day and then go back at night for a date night! Really a fun time!

We came to Charlottesville for a family wedding and had some time to kill. We discovered this mall and had a great morning, even though the weather was hot as blazes. There are plenty of old oak trees providing shade and lots of restaurants and shops for any taste. They do not allow any cars so you can walk along... More

We stopped at the Historic Downtown Mall on our way to Monticello on a Friday afternoon, and I'm so glad we did! The large trees shade the area so that the walk is peaceful (because there's no traffic) and pleasant even in hot weather. We ate outdoors under the trees, which was especially nice. There are plenty of stores and... More

This place is so much better than I thought. Blocks and blocks of shops, bars, and restaurants all accessible to pedestrians only. Very clean and fountains spread throughout. Truly a gem of the city.

This place is stunningly pretty, quiet, clean, and packed with amazing places to eat and shop. It features shops with products made by local artisans. Over the course of three days in the area, we enjoyed delicious beer, upscale pub food, local wine, and fine dining. A great place to relax and spend time with friends and loved ones.

The cobblestone mall is a beautiful slice of history. It is lined with shops and restaurants. Most of the restaurants have outdoor seating, which was very popular the evening I visited. The shops are mostly local and very creative-oriented. Nearby is a parking garage but you can also park for free down side streets nearby if you go in the... More
