Charlottesville's small army of bookstores, 22, ensures that book seekers of all kinds will come away satisfied. If stealing away to a basement after browsing multiple floors of well-selected books is your thing, Daedalus Bookshop is your place. If used is more your style, go with Heartwood Books. For a seriously impressive science fiction section, try Oakley's Gently Used Books.

Where to go: Daedalus Books

Authors who lived here: Greats like Edgar Allan Poe, William Faulkner and John Grisham have called the city home
