The Corner In the early 1900’s, this district literally was a corner, situated at the entrance to the University. Today, The Corner’s mix of history and modern nightlife makes it a must-see area of Charlottesville. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and retail outlets offer plenty to explore either before or after a rewarding visit to The Rotunda and Grounds.

A GUIDE FOR PARKING AT THE CORNER Many Corner-first timers gravitate towards the most obvious garage, next to the Biltmore on Elliewood. However, parking in this garage is overseen by a local towing company. If you choose to park here, make sure to have exact change (parking is less expensive if customers pay in cash, but the machines don’t offer any change) and to follow display directions on the ticket exactly. If you feel your vehicle has been towed unfairly, place a call to the police non-emergency number- CPD are very helpful. Do not park at the Bank of Americathe bank gets a lot of traffic and works diligently to keep spots open for customers. As a result, parking enforcement in their lot is strict. A much better option for parking is the open-air lot behind Ragged Mountain Running and the Virginian/Eddy’s bar block. (Turn in at the green and white sign for “Parking” after passing College Inn, coming from Rugby Rd, or after passing Little John’s, coming from 14th.) This lot has an attendant and is a pay-upon-exit option, so visitors don’t have to worry about how much time is left on their ticket while they’re trying to enjoy their evenings. This is also the least expensive option on the Corner. There’s also a lot on Wertland and 14th, which is covered, but pricier. However, it’s a better option for those who want to grab a slice at Mellow Mushroom or a cocktail from Cafe Caturra before heading down West Main to Midtown, or returning Alums who want to visit their mugs at St. Maarten. There are limited street parking areas up and down the Corner, with a row of metered spaces across from Mellow Mushroom and a few 15 minute spaces on every block. If a short walk isn’t out of the question, most UVA parking lots are free and open to the public after 5, M-F, and all day on weekends, as long as there isn’t a sporting event. UVA lots are clearly marked (look for white and gray signs at the entrance to lots, and blue lettered signs within lots) and are a great way to combine a walk up the Lawn with a visit to the corner. The lot at Bice on Brandon Avenue has ample parking and lends itself well to walking through the East Range- just park, and walk straight up Brandon onto grounds, and then straight through.

Attractions

elcome to Charlottesville, tucked into the foothills of Central Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. The area was home to three Founding Fathers and US Presidents—Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and James Monroe—and their homes, Monticello, Montpelier, and Highland, are all open to visitors. The Monticello Neighborhood Pass combination discount ticket offers discounted admission to Presidential Homes (Monticello, Montpelier, Highland, and Woodrow Wilson in Staunton), as well as to Michie Tavern, a historic 18th century tavern (read further for more information about these specific attractions). Charlottesville is also home to Thomas Jefferson’s University of Virginia, founded in 1819 and consistently ranked among the nation’s top public universities. The Charlottesville/Albemarle area truly has something for everyone. Adjacent to Historic Court Square is the Downtown Mall, a charming pedestrian mall filled with shops and restaurants and home to the Paramount Theater and the Sprint Wireless Pavilion, both highly rated music and entertainment venues. Another top rated venue, the 14,593-seat John Paul Jones Arena, is home to the UVA Men’s and Women’s Basketball teams and a wide variety of concerts, family entertainment, and community events. The area has a vibrant arts scene and

rich cultural history, showcased in a selection of first-rate museums, galleries, parks, and more. The following pages offer myriad things to see and do, from options in and close to town, to day trips that show off the area’s beautiful landscape, award-winning vineyards and much more. Charlottesville is just a short drive from the Blue Ridge Parkway, one of America’s most popular parks, and Shenandoah National Park via the Skyline Drive. For maps, brochures, additional copies of our guidebook and a wealth of information provided by expert local staff, visit the Charlottesville Area Visitors and Convention Bureau, located on the Downtown Mall. Also get 2 hours of free parking validated here while exploring the mall. See their ad below. Monticello is the only home in America recognized by the United Nations as a World Heritage Site, and it holds this distinction for good reason. Thomas Jefferson spent more than forty years designing and redesigning the home and furnishing, and cultivating plants ranging from the wild to the exotic in the expansive gardens, which include a fruit orchard, terraced vegetable garden, and a floral garden. Guided tours of the house are offered daily; outdoor gardens and plantation tours are offered April-October.

Michie Tavern, located ½ mile below Monticello, accommodated travelers in the traditional Tavern style more than 200 years ago. Today, visitors to Michie can get a taste of 18th-century tavern life. Servers dressed in period attire present patrons with a dining experience rich in southern culture and hospitality. Guests may further savor the past through a self-guided exploration of “Old Michie’s Tavern.” Guests may also enjoy relaxed shopping in four specialty shops housed in distinct historic structures. The Tavern-Museum Shop, The Metal Smith Shop, The Armory & Artifact Shop and The General Store each provide a one-of-a-kind shopping experience. Open daily 9am to 5pm. Midday Fare is offered 11:30am to 3pm. Continuous tours from 9am to 5pm. Highland, the property of James Monroe, 5th president of the United States, is adjacent to Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, and the locations of the two president’s homes are anything but random. Jefferson encouraged Monroe to purchase the plot in order to “form a society to [their] tastes.” Purchased by Monroe in 1793, the plantation was home to the Monroe family for nearly 25 years. Highland offers tours each day, hosts community and private events, and features a robust museum shop including a Virginia Artisan’s Room. New archaeological projects ensure that Highland always has something fresh to offer even regular visitors. Open daily November through March from 11am to 5pm and April through October from 9am to 6pm Adults $14, Seniors $12, Youth $8.

Orange County Scenic Orange County offers history, proximity to Charlottesville, wine, true Virginia BBQ, and a healthy dose of adrenaline for the thrill-seekers among us. The county is home to two aviation areas, Skydive Orange and the Orange County Airport. Consider hopping up on a horse for a guided trail ride at Indian Trace Trail Rides, or traveling on horseback down one of the trails that Thomas Jefferson and James Madison themselves used centuries ago at Oakland Heights Farm. For non-equestrian adrenaline, check out the Rapidan River Kayak Company, located on the scenic Rapidan River. For visitors who prefer paintball to paddling, WarPlay Paintball offers a tactical battlefield paintball experience. The Liberty Mills Farm Corn Maze offers a more erudite approach to strategy. Test your map skills, sense of direction, and work as a group to answer trivia questions and collect punches throughout the largest Corn Maze in Central Virginia. Orange is also home to a number of pick-your-own farms and the award-winning Barboursville winery.

amed in honor of Princess Charlotte, the wife of George III, Charlottesville was settled in the 18th century on a hill overlooking the Rivanna River. Today, the City of Charlottesville and surrounding Albemarle County has a metropolitan population nearing 200,000 encompassing over 730 square miles of scenic and beautiful landscape. Charlottesville and Albemarle County offer a unique combination of natural beauty, a climate with four distinct seasons, rich historical and cultural attractions, and close proximity to both a national park and the nation’s capitol. The area consistently earns high marks as a desirable place to live; in recent years, it has appeared on top-ten lists of cities published by Money, Forbes, Kiplinger’s, and Men’s Health magazines as well as AARP and the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Featuring the amenities of larger cities, Charlottesville is a vibrant university town that offers numerous outdoor recreational activities, organizations for senior citizens, fitness facilities, excellent private and public schools, indoor and outdoor shopping areas and entertainment venues, and residential communities that have developed through the years. These are just a few of the reasons why people choose to make Charlottesville and Albemarle County their home.
