9 Reasons to Visit Charlottesville, VA

I read a great article out of AAAWorld magazine about 9 great reasons to visit Charlottesville, VA.   I live east of the city of Charlottesville and believe that there are way more than 9 reasons to visit, but I will highlight the points that they did.

The first reason is the history that most of us who live here take for granted, like Monticello, Ashlawn, Michie Tavern and so many more. Of course Charlottesville is best known for the University of Virginia and all that it brings to the area, but we also have great community colleges and very good public schools. Food, we have plenty of places to eat, from quick and easy to an elegant meal. We also have beautiful rolling landscapes, flowing rivers, mountains to hike and open land to enjoy.

The convenience of Charlottesville is one of the things I find appealing, I can be in Richmond in an hour, DC in two hours, the beach in three hours and the mountains in just over a half an hour. The area also boosts a varied selection of places to stay from all styles of hotels to bed and breakfasts. If you are looking for entertainment you can go to John Paul Jones for a concert or sports game, to the many wineries and orchards that surround the area and the many theaters both live and movie.

The last but probably one of my favorite things are all the nature activities you can do from hiking and biking to horseback riding and camping. If you would like to find the entire article please click on this link, http://goo.gl/9itXE.
