The Best Part of Summer: Midsummer in Charlottesville

Charlottesville Downtown Summer EventMidsummer is in full swing, but you don’t have to fall into a summer slump! There are lots of things to do in Charlottesville and the surrounding region before the summer ends. Enjoy the best of Midsummer with a few of our favorite suggestions:

Charlottesville inhabits one of the most beautiful areas in the country for anyone who likes to hike and mountain bike. A short drive will take you to Humpback Rocks, where you can enjoy the fantastic view and enough elevation for refreshing breezes on top of the Rock. Crabtree Falls, Virginia’s most popular water fall, is a favorite summer hike - the refreshing forest hike to see these impressive falls is a welcome escape in August.

Humpback Rocks, near Charlottesville, VAIf more challenging hikes are your passion, visit to connect with fellow hikers and explore more strenuous hikes. Experienced hikers looking to find new territory can try Cove Mountain or the Wil Kohlbrenner Circuit Hike. also provides information and the chance to join in all types of local events.

If you would rather not drive to your hiking trails, Charlottesville residents have access to the shady forest paths of the Rivanna Trail. Explore the Charlottesville area without ever getting into a car or a bus. The trail circumnavigates the City of Charlottesville to connect walkers, runners, hikers, and bikers to the Historic Downtown Mall. Don’t waste your time looking for parking – walk to dinner and enjoy a leisurely stroll on the trail after.

Paramount Theater, Charlottesville, VAThe Downtown Mall offers so many great summer activities, too! Get some delicious ice cream made from locally grown ingredients at the legendary Chap’s Ice Cream. On Friday nights, take your ice cream with you to the Sprint Pavilion to listen to Fridays After Five, Charlottesville’s favorite weekly live music concert. Or savor a world class meal at Fleurie before a concert or a show at the Paramount theater.

If your stay-cation missing is making you miss the beach, fear not – Charlottesville’s IX Art Park can help you treat your “beach fever” without the long drive or the expensive hotel room. Grab your swimsuit and get to the IX Beach Party for your dose of sand and sunshine with a different theme each week. Bring your beach chairs, towels and sunblock and celebrate the greatest beaches of the world with music, food and a few IX surprises.

LOCKN' Music Festival Charlottesville, VABefore the summer fades into autumn, get your tickets to attend the famous LOCK’N festival. This once modest music festival has evolved into one of the most beloved events in our area.
