|About these ratings|
Charlottesville's popular shops, restaurants and ambience converge in one main area, known as the Downtown Pedestrian Mall. Located, as you would imagine, on Main Street, this thoroughfare also has an impressive collection of art galleries, like C'ville Arts or the Sage Moon Gallery. Travelers like to come here for the dinner options and/or to take an evening stroll. A particular mall favorite: Splendora's Gelato Café, where we'd recommend the dulce de leche flavor.
In spring and fall, the mall's Charlottesville Pavilion hosts musical acts like Ray LaMontagne, Wiz Khalifa and The Decemberists. The mall's historical Paramount Theater is a great space to catch fine performance art, like the Ash Lawn Opera.
