A ttractions G uide

A fun way for families to see Charlottesville is to hop aboard the free trolley and ride around downtown and the University of Virginia’s Corner. The trolley stops at specially marked bus stops every 15 minutes, so getting on and off for adventures and exploration is easy. Families of young children won’t want to miss the Virginia Discovery Museum on the Downtown Mall. In addition to the exciting games and learning exhibits, Photo Credit: Virginia Discovery Museum this children’s museum offers visitors the chance to explore Charlottesville in miniature form. Little C’Ville, one of the museum’s exhibits, includes a mini bread bakery and the post office. If you’re looking for outdoor play, the McGuffey Park near The McGuffey Art Center is an easy walk from the Downtown Mall. Or, for outdoor play with stunning world-famous views and nature of the wild kind, visit Shenandoah National Park, a short 30-minute drive away.
