The Historic Downtown Mall offers a lovely casual walk. You have street vendors and some interesting shops and restaurants. We enjoy strolling through a very cool used book store, stopping for a frozen yogurt. A short walk from the University of Virginia.

Pleasant to walk through, many restaurants and some shops. We liked that it was pedestrian friendly with limited vehicle access.

It was a delightful fall evening, perfect for outdoor dining and people watching. The area was beautiful with many historic buildings. Even though there were some street vendors and entertainers, it was all well executed and seemed like a friendly, safe place to be.

We walked in the downtown Mall area and were somewhat disappointed. Nice little restaurants, but not a lot of anything else to attract older citizens. Were only here about 30 minutes!
