As far as restaurants, the city is surprisingly spread out. You probably wouldn't want to be too far from where you're staying. There's downtown historic districts, restaurant row on Ward's Road and other areas. Can you pinpoint a little more a location.

As far as things to see...you might not want to miss the Blue Ridge Mountains, which you can actually see coming and going.

What else are you interested in? Maybe the historic districts. In mid 1800s Lynchburg was the second richest city in the country which resulted in lots of gorgeous mansions. If you're into Thomas Jefferson, right near Lynchburg is Thomas Jefferson's getaway, Poplar Forest.

There's a great bike/walking path.

The James River .... maybe from the Depot Grille restaurant if you're in that area.

Market at Main is delicious for breakfast. We love Waterstone for lunch. For a different atmosphere I would also suggest The Cavalier on Rivermont for lunch. "Hole in the Wall" in a good way! Burgers and fries if that is your thing.

Honestly, I do have to agree that it depends on where you are staying. The places I have recommended are right in the heart of downtown.

As far as things to do-it would depend on interest. Lots and lots of walking paths all over. There are lots of colleges that are fun to wander around. Thomas Jefferson's summer home is a great couple hour visit.
