Charlottesville’s historic “Corner” is a restaurant and shopping district located just across the street from University of Virginia.
The district consists of three streets, but the majority of the shopping and dining is on Univeristy Avenue. Charlottesville’s Main Street turns into University after crossing the railroad tracks. Further west it becomes Ivy Road.
Due to its proximity to the campus, the Corner is teeming with students while school is in session. The area offers dozens of locally-owned eateries with a variety of ethnic and American dining options.
Some limited shopping is also available. For University of Virginia swag, Mincer’s specializes in imprinted sportsware.
