Where students go
The Corner: A collection of student shops, bookstores, cafes and night spots, known as “the Corner,” stretches along University Avenue. The Corner is a hub of student life.
West Main: The street that connects the university and downtown with a variety of good restaurants all along the way. The train station is right off West Main, and there’s also a free trolley that runs between the university and downtown.
Downtown Mall: Downtown Charlottesville is the legal, financial and social hub of the community. The Downtown Mall, a tree-lined pedestrian walkway connecting the convention center and ice-skating rink with the city’s new municipal amphitheatre, offers restaurants and pubs, boutique shops, coffee houses, art galleries and a multiplex theater.
