Right on the downtown mall, a hub for ice activities like ice hockey and ice skating. Sadly, it is not in the plan for what is changing on the mall. Rumor is a location off the mall. We''ll see.

The folks at Main Street Arena always put on a good show. Anchoring the Charlottesville Downtown Mall, stop by for a skate, a game, or an event.

It's a lively place. There are local restaurants to please every palate all along the Mall and locally owned shops. The Paramount is a restored movie house from 1931 and is a culture anchor w/a full venue of performances, concerts and special movie showings.

The teams and kids need a place to play on the ice-hopefully a new ice rink will be built in a better location soon

Nicely developed skating rink on the east end of Main Street, the Arena draws good crowds throughout the day and into the evening. Accessible and moderately priced schedule for hourly skaters along with a nice snack bar. Inside seating for those interested in watching.

great town centre for mooching round shops. No big chains, lots of lunch options (under the trees so very pleasant);

I attend events at this arena fairly often. Unfortunately, the management here does very little to maintain the facility. From the used/worn furniture in the lobby to the seating to the nasty bathrooms. This place is filthy. It's too bad, this place has many unique...More

We stopped by here one evening while we had guests visiting. What a fun place. We had a drink (good prices) and watched some very talented young skaters practice. Beware---it is chilly in the rink area. What a wonderful thing for Charlottesville to have the...More
