Yesterday was another glorious day. We enjoyed clear skies, warm temps, and walking without coats and jackets. We navigated the Winnebago into Charlottesville … and had one or two toe-scrunching moments as we searched out parking.
In the heart of downtown Charlottesville is the Historic Downtown Mall, located on and around Old Main Street. At one end, the mall is anchored by the open air Charlottesville Pavilion, which hosts a number of concerts from Spring to Fall featuring nationally known musical talent.
Coming out of the pavilion, the pedestrian-only mall stretches for several blocks and is EXTREMELY dog friendly. There had to be over 100 shops and stores (mostly unique boutiques), a few street vendors, and probably 25-30 restaurants. The middle of the mall was lined with groupings of outdoor seating, some reserved for specific restaurants and others where you could sit and enjoy your take away meals or drinks. I believe I saw two movie theaters and the Paramount, a renovated historic theater that brings in comedy acts, musical theater, and some of the country’s best singers.
We are leaving Charlottesville today … heading down the Blue Ridge Parkway to ?? No suspense intended – I’m just not sure where we’re going next.
