Downtown Charlottesville means so much it's hard to explain. It's where I went for dinner with my mother in 2017 when I was touring Uva. It's a place I didn't really explore again until my third year when Covid prevented me from doing everything I love on grounds. It's a place I've grown, made some of the most beautiful memories, and will be excited to come back to whenever I return to Charlottesville. It's also an area of tragedy and part of a broader narrative of the way Charlottesville has destroyed neighborhoods to make more places for students like me to eat. I wanted to make a tour that would show my personal favorites, while also acknowledging the important history of the place. Enjoy!
