Area Attractions

Situated in the beautiful foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Charlottesville is a sophisticated, intimate city with small–town flavor only an hour from Richmond and two hours from Washington, DC. Numerous national rankings recognize its charms, and it tops a range of lists as a “best place to live”. Direct flights, rail and bus links, and interstate highways make Charlottesville an easy hub. Once home to three founding father Presidents (Thomas Jefferson at Monticello, James Madison at Montpelier, and James Monroe at Ashlawn-Highlands), the city also claims two World Heritage sites: Monticello and the University of Virginia. Outdoor lovers find hiking, water sports, camping, while athletes love the running and cycling scene. Home of the Dave Matthews Band, the area's cultural events include annual book and film festivals, the Charlottesville University Symphony Orchestra, the Paramount Theater, opera, bluegrass, live theater, and a broad spectrum of entertainment offerings at the John Paul Jones Arena.

More information about exploring the University of Virginia and Charlottesville is available at the UVA website. In addition, you can find a long list of things to do in Charlottesville and Albemarle county.

Welcome, and enjoy your visit!
