Nestled at the base of the stunning Blue Ridge Mountains, Charlottesville is part of Virginia's Piedmont region. Famously known as the home of Thomas Jefferson's architectural masterpiece, Monticello, the president once noted, "I am as happy nowhere else''.
Farmland blankets 723 square miles of Charlottesville along with the undulating green hills and vineyards. The city itself is a hub of academia, technology and business with a wealth of medical and health care options. In 2008 Charlottesville ranked number 13 in Forbes' "Best Places to Raise a Family."
Warm in the summer and mild in the winter, the area is a playground for outdoor activities. The local trails are optimal for avid hikers and historians will revel in the significant architecture within the area: the University of Virginia grounds, Montpelier, Michie Tavern and of course, Monticello.
Charlottesville is one hour from the capital city of Richmond; DC is also reachable within two hours. For further destinations, Charlottesville Airport offers connections nationally and internationally via US Air, American Eagle, or United Express.
