Some Fun Things To Do in Blacksburg, VA

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 10, 2017

Foxridge Apartment, Blacksburg, VAThis is the quintessential university town with plenty to do and equally attractive to college students, young professionals, retirees, and weekenders.If you live in our apartments in Blacksburg, VA here are some fun things to do around the area.

Downtown Blacksburg - Blacksburg has more students than it does permanent residents. The heart of downtown is Main Street, which features numerous bars, restaurants, and shops that cater to both the students and locals. The central business district is only about six blocks long, so it makes for an easy stroll. Downtown is cozy and relaxing: forget about making plans and go explore it for a while.

College Sports - Blacksburg draws large crowds on game weekends. Even if you are not a fan, the energy and atmosphere is an awesome experience. There’s tailgating and parties after every game, win or lose. Basketball is also gaining popularity. Going to a VT basketball game is no longer an easy ticket go get: schools like Duke, UNC, NC State and Wake Forest play here, all in a facility that gives you the up-close feel of a high school gymnasium. Games (and hotels) sell out quickly during big game weekends.

Also check out the 1774 Smithfield Plantation House, one of the first large farms established in Southwestern Virginia. Filled with early American history, the plantation house is now owned and run as a museum. For more fun, visit Adventure World skating rink or Crimper’s Indoor Climbing Gym in nearby Christiansburg. Or, during the summer spend a lazy day tubing on the beautiful New River.

Art, more than a form of expression, is a way of life in Blacksburg. On any given night, one can experience the lively music of Sidewalk Stage along College Avenue, out of this world shopping and dining, a show at the historic Lyric Theatre, or a world class performance at the Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech. For the late nighters, the fun continues with everything from Funk to Rock and Roll at some of Blacksburg’s infamous watering holes.

Just around the block is Market Square Park where the farm to table experience comes to life and the talents of artisans throughout the valley are celebrated on Wednesdays and Saturdays during the warm weather months. Wednesday evenings in the summer brings out the talents and revelry of heritage music and dance at the Market Square Jam.
