Founded in 1762, the city has been the home to two presidents: James Madison and Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson’s home, Monticello, and the University of Virginia, one of the most historically prominent colleges in the country, are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. To capture more of the history Charlottesville offers, take the walking tour of downtown Charlottesville for a look into early Americana.

Charlottesville’s entertainment, dining and shopping district, known as the Charlottesville Historic Downtown Mall, is one of the most beautiful and successful pedestrian malls in America. You will find more than 120 shops and 30 restaurants occupying historical buildings. A free trolley service connects the mall and the University of Virginia.
    For outside enthusiasts, Charlottesville is paradise. Kayak on the James or Rivanna rivers, or journey along miles of bike and walking trails through the nearby mountains and wilderness. Stroll the countless orchards that line many of the roads, where farmers have been growing strawberries, cherries, peaches and apples for generations.
