Congratulations on choosing Charlottesville as your new home! Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, your new community is known for year-round natural beauty and small-city sophistication. Charlottesville has received countless accolades in recent years for a variety of reasons — from its delicious, locally sourced restaurants to its active, sports-centric community. USA Today featured Charlottesville as a great place to invest in a home. “Take one of the nation’s quintessential college towns, throw in a big slice of American history, add golf courses and wineries, set it all in prime horse country, and the result is Charlottesville,” says Larry Olmsted for USA Today. We couldn’t agree more!
Charlottesville’s geographic proximity in the center of Virginia provides residents with far more than just the gentle rivers, rolling pastures, mild seasons and an easy, two-and-a-half-hour drive to Washington, D.C. or the Atlantic coast. For locals, “green” doesn’t just describe the rolling hills that surround Charlottesville. Green is a way of life for our eco-conscious residents, businesses and local government. Charlottesville is leading the way to a healthier, cleaner future in Virginia and has been recognized with the Governor’s Environmental Excellence Award. Now that you know a little more about all the great local offerings, turn to page 65 for details on how to get settled in your new home.
