Central Virginia Travel Guide 2021

Central Virginia Travel Guide

I’ve done a handful of various travel guides on my blog in past years, NYC/NJ, Napa, San Antonio, etc. It certainly seems odd to be doing one now when travel for leisure is uncommon, but two people have reached out to me for a list of cool things to see, eat, and do in Charlottesville and Richmond so I thought I would go ahead and compile my list. 

As with all of these lists, they are not finite and I don’t always keep them up to date. They reflect spaces and businesses that are and were doing business during the time of writing these posts. On this list are only places I have visited, not places I hope to visit. 

I hope you enjoy and if I missed a place you love please shout it out in the comments.
