About Locations - Charlottesville

Charlottesville, Virginia

Idyllic. Ambitious. Home.

A serene, two-hour drive from Washington, D.C., Charlottesville sits at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Central Virginia.

The town's classical architecture, with Thomas Jefferson's Academical Village as the centerpiece, provides the backdrop for a upscale town that offers the community of a small city and the vibrancy of a metropolis.

Here, innovative cuisine, a buzzing music scene, the East Coast's premier wine country, and all that the University of Virginia has to offer — including the nation's best public education and national championship sports — have some alumni coming back every year. Others stay for good.
