Visit Monticello, Civil War Battlefields & Beyond
Yes, Thomas Jefferson slept here. Actually, Monticello is one of the most famous historic homes in the United States, and one of only two he designed himself. But visitors to Charlottesville can enjoy lots more, from college sports and Civil War battlefields to an exciting bar and club scene. Below are some of the points of interest worth a visit during you’re visit to the area.
- Entertainment & Amusement Parks —The Telos Wireless Pavilion is the city’s premier outdoor performance venue while the John Paul Jones Arena at the University of Virginia was voted “Best New Major Concert Venue” a few years ago. The city’s nightlife ranges from dance clubs and distinct bars that cater to all ages and interests. In fact, Dave Matthews created his band while bartending at the city’s historic Downtown Mall.
- Arts & Cultural — As home to one of the nation’s most revered state universities, it’s no wonder that much of Charlottesville’s cultural venues revolve around the University of Virginia campus from the stage of the Heritage Theatre to the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection, the Fralin Museum of Art and the city’s own symphony orchestra. Looking for something off campus? Catch a show at the newly-restored Paramount Theater or tour the Virginia Discovery Museum.
- Restaurants & Shopping — The entrepreneurial restaurateurs of Charlottesville operate more than 100 venues that offer a dazzling array of dishes that draw on the freshest foods of the region. Burn off some calories by touring the more than 120 shops that make up the historic Downtown Mall or the Charlottesville City Market on Water Street. Follow the Monticello Artisan Trail to find area craftsmen or tour the galleries at the McGuffey Art Center.
- Golf Courses & Sports Venues — With an Arnold Palmer Signature Course and the world's first “Green Golf Trail” in the area, golf is a big lure for visitors, as are college sports. Home of the University of Virginia's Cavaliers football team, the 61,500-seat Scott Stadium this is the oldest active football stadium in Virginia. The John Paul Jones Arena hosts the school’s men’s and women’s basketball teams.
- Historic Sites & Landmarks — As far as historic homes go, few have what it takes to rival Monticello with its historical rooms, gadgets, furniture and various artifacts. Still, James Madison’s home at Montpelier and President Monroe’s home at Ash-Lawn Highland are both worth a visit as is the Rotunda at the University of Virginia. Don’t skip the Appomattox Court House and National Historical Park commemorating the end of the Civil War. Head to downtown Charlottesville to tour Court Square and the Old Michie Tavern, a local eatery that brings the sights and sounds of an 18th Century tavern to life.
- Parks & Outdoor Activities —Charlottesville is a four-season destination for outdoorsmen and sports lovers. When the weather cools, Charlottesville and Albemarle County delivers first-rate skiing, snowboarding and snow tubing. In warmer weather, there’s canoeing and fishing at Holliday Lake State Park as well as hiking along the Rivanna Trail and the 100 miles of the Appalachian Trail that runs through nearby Shenandoah National Park. Be sure to explore the gigantic stalactites and imposing stalagmites at Grand Cavern.
- Other Points of Interest — Do you prefer beer or wine? It doesn’t matter. The area around Monticello accounts for more than half of Virginia’s 2,000 vineyard acres and more than 20 wineries. Meanwhile, the Brew Ridge Trail lets hops lovers taste the best offered by the area's award-winning small-batch breweries.
