THE TOWN

Charlottesville is an independent city in the Commonwealth of Virginia. As of 2015, the population was 48,210. Charlottesville hosted two important Presidents, Thomas Jefferson and James Monroe. The University of Virginia, one of the original Public Ivies, straddles the city’s southwestern border with Albemarle. Monticello, located on a hilltop overlooking Charlottesville, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Located and attracts thousands of tourists each year. Lonely Planet writes: “Set in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Charlottesville is regularly ranked as one of the country’s best places to live. This culturally rich town of 45,000 is home to the University of Virginia (UVA), which attracts Southern aristocracy and artsy lefties in equal proportion. With the UVA grounds and pedestrian downtown area overflowing with students, couples, professors and the occasional celebrity under a blanket of blue skies, ‘C-ville’ is practically perfect. Charlottesville Visitor Center is a helpful office in the heart of downtown.
