Travel cravings

New food, new sights, beautiful people. Will climb for views.

Best travel experiences

Parasailing in Cape Town, wandering Shinto temples in Kyoto, abandoned lake swims in middle-of-nowhere Appalachia.

    • Morning
      • Bodo's Bagel Bakery

      • These better-than-New York bagels are a welcome home for returning Hoos and new visitors alike. Warm, fast, fresh, everything.
      • Humpback Hike

      • Endless horizon views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, 20 minutes out of town and just a mile to the top.
    • Afternoon
      • Blue Mountain Brewery

      • Recover from the hike with a brew, friends, ridiculously flavorful pizza and live music, with mountain views still at your doorstep.
    • Evening
      • Downtown Mall

      • One-of-a-kind shops, street performers and some of the best dining in the state line the historic red brick streets. Alleys and side streets are loaded with hidden gems.
      • The Flat Takeaway Creperie

      • Behind the Jefferson lies a little crepe shop that will make you cry. With joy.
      • The Jefferson Theater

      • The year-round venue for the best live music in town.
    • Night
      • The Whiskey Jar

      • The townie's Charlottesville. Come for the Sidecar, stay for the dancing man with the upright bass.
      • I would stay at: The Oakhurst Inn

      • Independent Inn close to UVA grounds with world-class service and as a bonus, possible the best place for brunch in town attached.
