Charlottesville doesn’t lack in the area of entertainment and activities. Our Daytrips section includes overviews of over 60 tried and true, not-to-be-missed outings throughout Charlottesville and Central Virginia. Packed with an assortment of activities for children of all ages—from parks and playgrounds to special seasonal attractions and fun-filled festivals— families can enjoy a hike in the Blue Ridge Mountains one day and a worldclass theatrical performance or national music act the next. We introduce you to museums, historical sites, artsy galleries and workshops, outdoor adventures and much, much more. This invaluable section also highlights some of our favorite quirky, off-the-beaten path attractions that are sure to surprise and delight you and your little ones! We won’t divert your attention any longer, but rather encourage you to jump right in to the fantastic and family-friendly daytrips your family should explore this year. Enjoy!
