Charlottesville aka C’ville spread over an area of 27 km is an independent city in Virginia.
In case you are visiting Virginia sometime soon, then we suggest you visit Charlottesville to go on a scenic trip through Skyline Drive that is forty miles the Shenandoah national park, a tour through the vineyards in the famous Monticello wine trail.
What to do here?
The historic Downtown Mall street is a favorite place in C’ville which hosts one twenty shops, thirty restaurants, ten art galleries and numerous venues for performances along with an ice skating rink and a farmer’s market.
Paramount theatre can be a great place to catch up with performances like Ash Lawn, but the only negative point about this place is that even though the parking is free if cost, the parking is limited. We are just going to the water street parking garage as there are a lot of parking spots available at about $2 per hour.
We guess it isn’t a bad idea to go around the University of Virginia, the university in the country of the United States to be declared as a heritage site by UNESCO! You will find a majority of students and families around this place and can easily find accommodation and feel what it is like to be a regular common man around this place.
There are a lot of recommended accommodations here, but to name a few we have -Omni Charlottesville hotel, Oakhurst Inn, Hilton garden Inn and Courtyard by Marriott.
According to us the best time to visit Charlottesville is around May to July and the wine tasting seasons-especially spring. Although these are the best time around the year, but keep in mind it is also the peak of the year and hence the hotels and restaurants may hike their rates in folds.
You may also visit it around autumn season to check out the autumn falls and this time of the year is sort of quiet and you can get some pretty lucrative deals on accommodations and overall expenses.
