Fun Especially for Families Where Families Play

A ttractions G uide

A fun way for families to see Charlottesville is to hop abroad 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. In addition to the exciting games and learning exhibits, 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, The Paramount Theater and the post office. Three new exhibits — Discovery Farm, Discover Outdoors and Financial Fundamentals — recently opened. If you’re looking for outdoor play, the McGuffey Park near The McGuffey Art Center is an easy walk from the Downtown Mall. This lovely little park is packed with fun. 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. To find out more about how local families play, visit or pick up a free copy of CharlottesvilleFamily’s Bloom magazine, available around town.
