while in Charlottesville, be sure and visit Monticello, the former home of president Thomas Jefferson. The University has several nice places to visit as well.there is a good museum there. Just rent a car, and have fun. The blue ridge parkway extends from North Carolina through Virginia up into Maryland. Just take one section of it, there's an entrance in the south side of Charlottesville and I'd go south. You'll come across very scenic views, waterfalls, places to picnic and hiking trails. If you go north, you'll come across some of the tourist stations, restaurants and travel shops. Have fun.

I realize you already had your visit but perhaps this will help someone else- down the road from Monticello is Michie tavern where you can have a colonial lunch on your way to Carter Mountain Apple Orchard. After enjoying the view from Carter Mountain, head over to Ashlawn highland to tour President Monroe's Victorian residence and farm. There is also UVA- perfect for a walk to enjoy the architecture and landscaping and their art museum. Venture into the county for vineyards, lakes and parks, Blue Ridge views from horse country. When you want to pick up the pace a bit stroll the pedestrian downtown mall where you can shop and dine, enjoy music, people watching... there truly is something for everyone. A great resource for shows, places to stay and dining is their local guide, http://www.CharlottesvilleWelcomeBook.com

Travel Tips for Charlottesville

University Chapel

by matcrazy1

Surely Jefferson's house and plantation at Monticello is a must. But my foundest memory from Charlottesville is a taste of some wine in Jefferson's winery and this little, charming church in my picture - the University of Virginia Chapel located west of the Rotunda (corner University Ave. & McCornick Rd.) The Gothic Revival building was designed by Charles Emmet Cassell of Baltimore and dedicated in 1889. The University Chapel no longer holds regular religious services, but weddings and memorial services still take place inside. I liked the design of this little church and stained glasses inside.

Charlottesville is a southern...

by vilkas

Charlottesville is a southern town but being a university town it's also quite cosmopolitan - if that's a good thing! Quite a few celebrities live in the area, so we have our share of the snobbish rich folk, and yuppies too, but you will find an active international community associated with the University (I find Russians everywhere I go around here!) as well as the always wonderful country people.

Top 5 unusual Charlottesville

by Quasdanovic

1) Hogswaller Neighborhood/Livestock Market/Woolen Mills tour: This is an unusual part of the town. Check out the livestock market on Saturday Afternoons. Park on Franklin St (on google maps), where the market is located. You can even buy a sandwich there while you watch the inscrutable old farmers buy their animals. Walk or drive north up to East Market St and turn right. Go to the end of the road and park by the river. The Rivanna river is still a fairly neglected river, with a totally wild feel to it even in the parts that skirt the city limits.

2) Spudnuts Donuts. Avon St at Monticello Rd. Apparently, this was once a large franchise, but nowadays there are only a few left, all but one of which are located west of the Mississippi. The Charlottesville branch has very limited hours, so it is best to come before noon. The donuts are made out of potato flour and are quite unlike any other donuts I have ever had.

3) UVA Gardens at night. This isn't really off the beaten path, as many people visit these unique gardens right alongside the academical village and Rotunda. However, the gardens are really much more interesting at night. Almost all of them are kept open all night long and the lighting is perfect for nocturnal adventures. Creep around laughing at the students making out and imagining how Edgar A. Poe must have felt way back when.

4) Deadalus Book Store. Charlottesville has an amazing variety of used book stores for a town its size. I would start with Deadalus Books on 3rd (or 4th? I can never remember) St NE and East Market St. This is advertised as a "labyrinth" of books, and that is a pretty good description.

5) Drive south on Old Lynchburg Rd (on google maps). Pretty much any small road leaving Charlottesville will put you in some beautiful countryside, but I think this is an under-appreciated country drive that you will appreciate even (perhaps especially) if you end up getting lost.

Jefferson's grave

by matcrazy1

Thomas Jefferson died on July 4, 1826 - exactly on the fiftieth anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence - and is burried at Monticello with other members of his family in fenced, charming Monticello Cemetery hidden among trees at the west end of Mulberry Row. The cemetery was closed but I could see all graves through a decorative fence.

The letters "O.S." appearing after birth dates on Jefferson's tombstone stand for "Old Style." The Julian or Old Style calendar was in effect in England and her colonies until 1752, when the Gregorian or New Style calendar was adopted. This added eleven days to the current date to bring the calendar year into step with the astronomical year. Thus, the birthday of Jefferson, who was born on April 2 under the Old Style calendar, is now celebrated on April 13, the New Style date. The Gregorian or New Style calendar is still in use today.

Classical architecture

by matcrazy1

Walking around Charlottesville's downtown I've found a few impressive buildings in classical style. Well, copying classical ancient temples is a worldwide custom, not only American. They are pit up to house noble and important institutions like government offices, libraries, banks etc.

In Charlottesville I've seen among others:
- Jefferson-Madison Regional Library (formerly post office and court building) along the Downtown Mall (201 E. Market Street) - it's a place to access the internet (for free up to 1 hour 9am - 9 pm) if you need,
- building of the Bank of America (corner E. Main St. & 3rd St. E.).
