About Charlottesville, Virginia
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 our events, stroll the brick-lined Downtown Mall or taste fruits and vino at our 20+ local orchards and vineyards. Make sure to toast to the area’s most famous son, Thomas Jefferson. Today, his legacy lives at our two UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the grounds of his home, Monticello, and at the University of Virginia.
