12 Places In Farmville, VA To Visit When You Feel Like There Is Nothing To Do

12 Places In Farmville, VA To Visit When You Feel Like There Is Nothing To Do

Living in a small town doesn't mean there's nothing to do.


Here at Longwood University, we live in the small town of Farmville, VA and frequently we find ourselves wondering what to do with the limited free time we have. This is my third year in Farmville and while I love it, others are easily disgruntled by the limited options we have. Here is a list of places worth checking out the next time you find yourself bored with nothing to do.

1. Uptown Coffee Cafe

This is easily my #1 place in Farmville. Whether I'm going to lunch with friends or just looking for a place to do homework, this is always my go to. My favorite is the chicken bacon ranch wrap with fries! They also make a mean peppermint hot chocolate!

2. Macados. 

While this option is a little more pricey, it's great food!

3. High Bridge

This is the perfect walk with beautiful views. While I haven't been to the bridge itself before, the pictures are breathtaking and the walk is straightforward and flat.

4. Main Street Bagels 

Not only are the bagels top notch, but the staff exceeds customer service expectations!

5. Pino's Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria

This is a family business with great staff and great food.

6. Charley's Waterfront Cafe

This is another pricey-er option, but boy do they deliver. My favorites are the Wednesday night all you can eat $10 pasta night and the Sunday brunch.

7. The Fishin' Pig

More on the Hampton Sydney College side of town, but still equally as good food. And the prices are great!

8. Sleeping Bee 

This is a go-to for gift items or home decor. I went in for the first time last week and they carry a large variety of items recognizable to students like Yeti and Tervis, but also beautiful decor.

9. Pairet's 

What. Amazing. Prices. Seriously - if you're a Longwood student and you haven't checked out Pairet's, it's a must for all your school attire for amazing prices. Plus it's customizable which makes your pieces pretty unique.

10. Main St. Lanes

The bowling alley offers great pricing for students on Tuesday nights and for girls, in particular, Thursday nights. Plus their food is inexpensive and pretty good!

11. Mill Street Sweets

They're deserts look to die for on the daily! It's the perfect stop to cure your sweet tooth and it's right downtown.

Our town is growing, here are some new places I've yet to try but have on my list for this year. 

Perini Pizza

Hotel Weyanoke (which offers three new and exciting food options)


Hopefully, with these options, you'll grow to love our little town as much as I do. By getting out and exploring your surroundings you never know what you'll find!

A College Student's Review Of Hello Fresh

All the ingredients in a box with a recipe card, sounds simple enough.


A few weeks ago I was getting ready to go grocery shopping when I got the idea to give a meal kit a try. I researched various providers, and realized Hello Fresh seemed to be the one I would like best. I registered and picked out my meals for the following week... and waited, not so patiently, for them to arrive. The first week I chose Cauliflower Pancetta Macaroni and Sweet as Honey Chicken.

When I opened the box I was thoroughly surprised that everything was still fresh, but I guess they know what they`re doing after all. They add insulation in the box and several Ice packs to keep everything cold. My box sat in the office of my apartment complex for four hours, and it was still cold, I was immediately impressed. The ingredients for each meal, excluding meat, come separately packaged in labeled bags. You also get recipe cards, printed in color with pictures to describe each step.

Hanah Jenkins

The first meal I cooked was the Chicken. The bag Came with all the ingredients needed to be measured and separately packaged. A great thing about Hello Fresh is that there is a section on the recipe card that tells you what all you will need that they don`t supply, pans and such. I began the recipe, and it was super easy to follow. The fact that each step has a picture to go with it was super helpful to me because I was able to compare what my meal looked like to theirs. It can get a little tough to manage when you have to do multiple things at once, but I just invited friends over and we had a little dinner party cooking my Hello Fresh meals. The steps are super easy to follow and use basic cooking knowledge, no matter what cooking skill level you are, you can do these recipes. This meal, along with all the others I have ordered, tasted amazing! I have been trying new foods, and it`s been so much fun to make these new recipes every week!! My only complaint with the food so far has been the rice, most of the meals come with jasmine rice, and I`m just not a big fan of this type.

Sweet as Honey Chicken with Green Beans and Rice Hanah Jenkins

I have received Hello Fresh for three weeks now, and I love it! Overall, it is such a good way to discover new recipes and they are simple to follow and turn out amazing! The cost can be a little pricey, but pretty much every youtuber has partnered with Hello Fresh, and most have a coupon code. I used a code that gave me $20 off each of my first three boxes, which meany I only spent $15 dollars. I`m usually the only one who eats the meals, so one box gives me four to five meals. Five meals for fifteen dollars is amazing, and so much cheaper than eating out or buying food from the grocery store. I definitely recommend Hello Fresh to college students. Even though it can be expensive, it`s definitely worth the purchase!
