Editors' Picks: Our Top College Towns
College towns can get a bad rep, but our staff's picks are rich in culture, entertainment and -- most importantly -- have food worth leaving campus for.Filed under:
Charlottesville, home to the University of Virginia, was recently named one of National Geographic's 10 "World Wonders" thanks to Thomas Jefferson's design. Beyond the campus' Rotunda and nearby Monticello, the rolling hills and Blue Ridge mountains serve as a beautiful backdrop for the surrounding wineries and orchards. For its size, Charlottesville is incredibly well-read (it supports 2 weekly papers), has a plethora of art galleries, is overflowing with restaurants and attracts big-name talent to its open-air pavilion on the Downtown Mall.
Please forgive us, this gallery is really popular.
