The New York Times recently wrote of the town, “Charlottesville has been discovered by those who seek a setting where privacy is respected, where there is a good balance of intellectual stimulation and lazy-dog relaxation, where the nation’s early history seems to come alive, where Southern gentility, even chivalry, still thrives and perhaps above all, where the land rolls away toward the mountain in the west with a beauty that snatches the breath at the top of each crest and the bottom of every vale.”

Welcome to Charlottesville and Albemarle County


Along the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Charlottesville and Albemarle County offer a unique experience in a picturesque setting!

Delight in the finest restaurants, attend endless events, stroll the brick-lined Downtown Mall and the UVa Corner or taste fruits and vino at the 30+ local orchards and vineyards.


Nestled amid the foothills of the magnificent Blue Ridge Mountains and about a hundred miles South of Washington, D.C., the greater Charlottesville region offers visitors a thriving community and vanguard of arts and culture that’s both boldly innovative and grounded in rich tradition. Just beyond city lines, quiet rolling hills and family farms complement city life within Albemarle County’s more than 700 square miles of vibrant natural beauty, including Shenandoah National Park’s Skyline Drive and abundant history and heritage.
