Charlottesville

Trip Planner USA  /  Virginia  /  Charlottesville

Hoo-Ville

Situated at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Charlottesville is perhaps best known as the home of three of the United States' founding fathers, including Thomas Jefferson. The former president continues to have a strong impact on the city, as many of its public buildings have been built in a Jeffersonian style. Some of the finest examples can be found at the university here, whose campus is a World Heritage Site. For a small city of about 40,000, the historic downtown area includes a wide array of stores, restaurants, bars, and entertainment venues. The terraces here often bustle with visitors and locals sampling wine from local vineyards. Charlottesville is in Virginia (VA). Make your own Charlottesville vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our United States trip tool .

Where to stay in Charlottesville

Hotels and inns in Charlottesville's lively downtown area offer proximity to the city's main attractions, but they can be on the expensive side. There are several more inexpensive options located along or near Emmet Street, which is a short drive from the main thoroughfare. Alternatively, immerse yourself in local history by staying at a centuries-old bed and breakfast. Many of these establishments are complete with fine period furnishings.
