Charlottesville has evolved over the centuries to become a colourful, vibrant city, overflowing with charm and character. The city and its surroundings offer a wealth of activities and attractions for all interests and ages. Charlottesville was fortuitously spared the brunt of the American Civil War, and much of the original architecture has been preserved, ensuring all who visit are able to wander the halls, the paths and streets of this historical city, and witness the legacy of those who built it.
Located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Charlottesville's beauty is only surpassed by that of the natural surroundings that cradle it. The four seasons bring with them four wondrous backdrops, each one a visual masterpiece.
