Went to Pavilion to see a show. The Pavilion is located at the end of the downtown mall. Great location with restaurants everywhere. Staff at the Pavilion were great and show was awesome

Shopping, restaurants and entertainment all in one place. This is a great place to visit for all ages. While this is located close to the UVA campus, there is a sophistication about it that is usually missing when you are around a college area. Very well done.

After a full day of touring Monticello we walked around the outdoor mall. It was a beautiful spring night and several street musicians were playing. After cruising for a place to eat we decided on Italian and ate al fresco at Sal's Cafee Italia. Eating in the open air center of the mall was just like eating on the street... More

after a long day driving and touring Monticello, we caught awesome free music at the Ntelos Pavillion. Then we strolled the pedestrian mall. Fun shops - antiques, quirky things. This was a Friday night, would have been nice if shops were open a bit later (most closed at 8 pm. Some at 9pm). There are many restaurants and bars still... More

Except for Dave Matthews' fans, who can have a beer at Miller's, the tavern where Dave was a bartender and where de met LeRoi and Carter Beauford to form the band.

I have traveled across the US- including Alaska and over 5,000 miles in NC, SC, TN, and VA, this year alone;but only in Charlottesville did we have a hard time locating the Visitors Bureau! The signs (all varieties of color and shape)to the place had no directional arrows and were intermittent if not infrequent though we were coming through the... More

Loved the people watching, the atmosphere, and the wide choice of restaurants. Plus the weather is ideal for outside eating.

What a fun place to shop, eat and drink in the atmosphere. This is a must if you are in the area. Stop by Miller's for an afternoon cocktail, Dave Matthews got his start playing in this Tavern and it is just fun.

This outdoor mall has many unique small shops (vintage clothing, art galleries, book stores), an ice skating rink, and a theater. There are many good dining options as well. The outdoor restaurant seating is very nice.
