The Bucket List, as it is commonly known at the University of Virginia (UVa), is a list of things to do and experiences to have, specifically designed for the UVa student population.UVa isn’t alone in this tradition; it’s a national phenomenon. Generally, “college bucket lists” include some form of public nudity (streaking) and other slightly criminal and/or socially questionable activities.

However, the UVa Bucket List also proposes perfectly acceptable, inspiring and refining activities. And, because UVa and the city of Charlottesville are so intertwined, this collegiate bucket list is a great first step to planning an itinerary of activities for a trip to Charlottesville.

Granted some of the items on the list may be too collegiate in nature, but the most bucket list items can certainly be informing and inspiring for the details of Charlottesville things to do like a local: what are the must-eat restaurants; which historical tours are best; and which activities, events, places you shouldn't leave town without experiencing. Besides, those collegiate items on the UVa bucket list probably just need a little reworking to be applicable.

With a little creativity, and the help of the Uva Bucket List, your next visit to Charlottesville could not only provide rest and relaxation, but also a very local travel experience, filled with plenty of good, humanizing, youth-ful memories.
