Charlottesville Travel Guide: 295 reviews and 771 photos

Charlottesville is a beautiful town in western Virginia that is famous for the homes of Presidents Jefferson and Monroe and the University of Virginia. However, the downtown area offers much more to residents and visitors. In a move to revitalize the downtown area, Main Street was reserved for pedestrians only, and has thrived. This 1/2 mile stretch of downtown, within easy walking distance of the University, is packed with shops and restaurants with huge outdoor seating areas. The night I was there, most of the outdoor areas were packed (on a Thursday night no less!).

    One of our desired trips is to the area, and maybe here. Your discussions are good, and the pictures wonderful

    Very good tips. I liked there a lot. I was in Charlottesville two months after you and stayed at Super8 as well.

    I LOVE Blue Moon Diner! Great Charlottesville page, you're the 1st person I've found on VT who's visited Crabtree Falls (I hope to go soon!)
