Life in Blacksburg, VA Where to Have Fun

Things to Do

Relaxing and decompressing from school doesn't have to cost anything. Resting outside in many of the outdoor areas on campus can be the step away from school you needed, especially if you spice it up with a hammock. For free entertainment during the winter, it's very common to find an eruption of snowball fights, primarily during the first snowfall.

Dominating the spring semester is "The Big Event" rooted in Virginia Tech's motto of Ut Prosim, meaning "That I May Serve." The Big Event completes a thousand local service projects by a volunteer force in the thousands to rank as the second-largest event of its kind in the nation.

If the rock band Metallica never had you jumping before, a Virginia Tech tradition will. At the beginning of every football game, the crowd erupts when the players enter onto the field to marching tune of Enter The Sandman. Any sports season is huge at VT sometimes causing the teachers to end class early.

Dining

For whatever it's worth to you Virginia Tech's dining halls are ranked number one in the nation. Home Place is a very well known and visited a restaurant serving family-sized platters out of a 1907 home.

Rivaling the Home Place is Mountain View Italian Kitchen. For your warning, Mountain View Italian Kitchen is about 10 miles outside of town and will seem to be in the least of likely spots for such a great restaurant. Use our warning for anyone that is riding with you because they might wonder if they are actually going out for dinner.

For other great restaurants check out our list below:

  • Souvlaki for Gyros
  • Top of The Stairs "TOTS"
  • Hokie House
  • The Cellar
  • Cabo Fish Taco

Outdoors

The outdoors at Virginia Tech is a real experience every time you walk outside. Virginia Tech itself is nestled on a plateau between the Blue Ridge and Alleghany mountains. Although there is a considerable drive, you can have breathtaking views with exploring the notorious Appalachian trail.

A hindrance to enjoy the outdoors in Virginia can be equipment, planning, and lack of necessary skills. Virginia Tech's student organizations frequently take trips and the effort to join them is minimal. Venture Out is through a unit in Recreational Sports where you can find many services including education necessary for any trips or your planning. They also have equipment rentals at very competitive rates and trips planned removing any barriers from exploring the outdoors.
