Winter 2013-2014

Welcome! Year-round natural beauty, hallowed halls of history, spectacular arts and music and small-city sophistication — Charlottesville has it all! It is easy to see why Sperling’s Best Places recently named Charlottesville as the #1 Best Place to Live. Here you can walk in the footsteps of Thomas Jefferson at his Monticello home and at his beloved University of Virginia – both are World Heritage Sites full of fascinating history and interesting architecture, plus you can relax in the scenic countryside he so admired dotted with stunning vineyards, horse farms and Blue Ridge Mountain views. With so many wonderful places to enjoy here in Charlottesville, it can be tough to choose. So, we went to the experts to find out what they think is the best of the best. Every other year we poll our Charlottesville Welcome Book readers, locals and tourists, about their favorite local businesses that exemplify wonderful customer service; from delicious restaurants, amazing boutiques, hot spots and cool clubs, to wonderful resorts and awe-inspiring historical landmarks...and everything in between! Watch for the Welcome Book Winner logo on ads throughout this issue, in shop windows and go to CharlottesvilleWelcomeBook.com to get the insider’s scoop on the best of everything our town has to offer. All of the 2012-2013 award winners are highlighted in a special digital edition online, along with plenty of reader’s tips that will put you “in the know.” Throughout the winter, we’ll give away tickets to Charlottesville concerts, festivals and other events on our Facebook page at Facebook.com/CharlottesvilleWelcomeBook, so be sure to like us for a chance to win!

Attractions & Museums Monticello in Winter Glory Monticello: Robin Bethke

From the moment you glimpse the iconic pillars of Monticello’s West Portico, you know you are in the presence of a visionary mind. The author of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson dedicated his life to serving our country at its founding as the third United States president, Governor of Virginia and Secretary of State. Jefferson was also an architect, scholar, musician, inventor and agriculturalist. Like the Taj Mahal and Tower of London, Monticello is a World Heritage Site known the world over as a cherished piece of human history. Mr. Jefferson’s clever designs abound at Monticello, from the Great Clock in the hallway, that marks the days and hours with a pulley system, to the polygraph copying machine he designed for his famous letters. While visiting Monticello, take advantage of Virginia’s mild winters and enjoy the expansive landscape with a stroll on the grounds. Have you ever wondered what is upstairs at Monticello? Quench your curiosity with the Behind-the-Scenes Tour to the second-floor bedrooms, once occupied by Jefferson’s family; to the iconic third floor Dome Room; and to the interactive “Crossroads” exhibition under the house. On these guided tours you’ll see unique interior architectural features, learn about on-going historic restoration efforts and gain insight into what one of Thomas Jefferson’s granddaughters called “the bustle and hurry” of life at Monticello. If you’re looking for a seasonal experience, Monticello offers Holiday Evening Tours where visitors get an intimate look at how the holidays were celebrated in Jefferson’s time, plus the rare opportunity to experience Monticello after dark. This year, Monticello will host a holiday open house on December 1, offering visitors a chance to be the first to see the historic home decorated for the holidays. The popular wreath-making workshops are another winter treat. These workshops produce a beautiful holiday decoration with which to adorn your front door or space above the mantle. See our Events Calendar on page 36 for more details. Complete your immersion into our third president’s life by journeying on the Jefferson Heritage Trail. Linking Monticello and Jefferson’s private retreat, Poplar Forest, the trail highlights businesses in the countryside that Jefferson would have traveled between his two homes. From wine to food and hospitality to art, there is much to explore and discover! Find more information at jeffersonheritagetrail.com.

Michie Tavern: Robin Bethke

Attractions & Museums More Colonial Riches

When visiting Monticello, save time for Ash LawnHighland, the elegant plantation home of our fifth president, James Monroe. Just two-and-a-half miles down the road from Monticello, everyone will love the 19th century-style holiday decorations adorning the home during the month of December. For those seeing both attractions on the same day, the perfect lunch break can be found at the 18th-century Michie Tavern, just down the road from Monticello. The rustic restaurant features hearty Southern fare and servers in period attire. For a special treat, indulge in the Yuletide Feast on the evenings of December 13 and 14, complete with strolling musicians who will entertain guests dining by candlelight. Another area presidential property is Montpelier, the home of James and Dolley Madison. The estate’s “A Candlelight Christmas” celebration on December 6-7 and 13-14 features tours of the Madison’s home by candlelight alongside a Dolley Madison interpreter. Plus, you can watch and participate in period style dancing, enjoy light refreshments, wine and wassail around the tree in the Grand Salon while enjoying harp music and carolers.

un try !

The charming town of Scottsville was founded along the banks of the beautiful James River as a major hub for travel and commerce. Not far from the town’s present day location, Thomas Jefferson’s father, Peter, served as justice for the newly formed County of Albemarle in the mid-1700s. Years later, Jefferson himself practiced law in the town’s old courthouse. This quiet little town is loaded with charm and delightful surprises! Visit scottsville.org for a downloadable walking map to hit all of the town’s points of interest. Within Scottsville’s historic district, you will find intriguing antique shops, delicious restaurants, homemade ice cream and craft brews. Visit the nearby Scottsville Museum to delve into the town’s transformation from an 18th-century settlement to a bustling 19th-century river and canal port. Across from the Scottsville Museum, visit Canal Basin Square for a self-guided tour of the area’s outdoor transportation history from the Native American Monacans until the railroad era. Venture farther afield down country lanes to the scenic beauty of nearby vineyards and horse farms. Just a few miles up the road is Pine Knot, President Theodore Roosevelt’s rustic retreat. History buffs, be sure to request a visit in advance as the historic site does not offer regular walk-in hours. No matter your plans, Scottsville is a fun little town to discover!

Holiday Heritage Parade: courtesy Charlottesville Holiday Traditions

Fun Especially for Families Where Families Play

From ice-skating at the Main Street Arena to family shows and movie screenings at the Paramount Theater, winter offers plenty of frosty fun for children on the Historic Downtown Mall. Be sure to check out the Visitors Center, then head to the Virginia Discovery Museum just steps away. This museum is full of fun hands-on exhibits, such as Little C’Ville, which includes a mini bakery, Paramount Theater and post office and a Bee Hive sponsored by CharlottesvilleFamily Magazine. On sunny days, you’ll find the nearby McGuffey Park playground is the perfect spot for kids to run off steam. And, when the weather outside is frightful, hop aboard the free trolley for a fun tour of downtown. The Downtown Mall is also the place to be for holiday festivities! On November 29, kick off the season with the Grand Illumination of the Community Christmas tree. Before and after the countdown to flip the switch, there will be seasonal music, caroling and activities for the kids. Virginia Gingerbread Christmas is another popular holiday tradition. Visitors can also wander through a Winter Wonderland of fairy tale gingerbread houses created by local professionals, amateurs and youths. To find out how local families play, log on to CharlottesvilleFamily.com.

The Arts & Music Scene Music Notes Charlottesville’s eclecticism and great support of the arts lend the local music scene an amazing breadth. Whether you prefer bluegrass or jazz, rock or country, alternative or gospel, metal or classic, we have it all! At The Jefferson Theater, catch acts like Eddie From Ohio (December 13) or Clutch (January 16), or head to the Southern Cafe and Music Hall for performances from Cindy Blackman Santana (November 24) and Larry Keel and Natural Bridge (December 7). The Paramount Theater will host Wynonna & The Big Noise (December 20) and Lang Lang (February 15). Fans of Dave Matthews Band will want to stop into Miller’s on the Downtown Mall, where Dave served drinks before taking the stage and soon were on their way to becoming a Grammy-winning and top grossing touring band. In addition, Charlottesville is home to John Paul Jones Arena, named “Best New Major Concert Venue at Pollstar’s annual Concert Industry Awards when it first opened in 2007. Major figures in the music industry will descend upon the arena this winter, including the Midtown Men (December 15) and Jason Aldean (January 24).

In addition to UVA’s long-standing interest and appreciation of music, the Municipal Band of Charlottesville has delighted the community with performances since 1922, and is now one of the oldest continuously operating amateur community bands in the country. The band performs regularly throughout the year at The Paramount Theater, first built in 1931. On December 15, catch the band’s annual holiday concert at the MLK Performing Arts Center at Charlottesville High School. Live music truly abounds in Charlottesville!

UVA Old Cabell Hall: Robin Bethke

Since its founding nearly 200 years ago, music has been part of the history of the University of Virginia. Located on The Lawn, UVA’s Old Cabell Hall houses one of the finest historic auditoriums in the country along with the largest music library in Virginia. The auditorium was first built in 1898 and is lauded by artists as one of the best venues worldwide for its excellent acoustics and intimate atmosphere. This winter, Old Cabell Hall will host performances from the Charlottesville & University Symphony Orchestra, the Virginia Glee Club and the Rivanna String Quartet, among other groups. During your visit be sure to check out the copy of The School of Athens by Raphael dating to 1900 gracing the north wall and the Skinner organ, a gift from Andrew Carnegie in 1906.

When you visit Charlottesville, you’ll quickly see how our vibrant arts scene has something for everyone! Experience engaging local performances and touring troupes this winter at venues large and small. From national acts at The Paramount Theater to lively performances from our smaller local theater companies such as Live Arts, Four County Players and the American Shakespeare Center in Staunton - there is always a show going on.

The Paramount will also present another season of live broadcasts from the Metropolitan Opera. Comedians Bill Burr and Ron White will take the stage this winter, too.

A short drive over the mountain to nearby Staunton’s American Shakespeare Center presents the works of Shakespeare “in the round” under the original staging conditions at the Blackfriars Playhouse. The winter season within this beautiful setting, the world’s only re-creation of Shakespeare’s indoor theatre, includes “Othello,” “As You Like It” and “Timon of Athens,” among others. Be sure to arrive early for the pre-show entertainment in true Shakespearian style! Performances abound in Charlottesville! Check out the full schedule at CharlottesvilleWelcomeBook.com. 32

Charmy Still Life/Fralin Museum

The Arts & Music Scene Art That Moves You

Exuberant painter Jackson Pollock said that art is “all a big game of construction, some with a brush, some with a shovel, some choose a pen.” Whatever your favorite medium, galleries and artwork abound here. Each first Friday of the month, from 6-8pm, local galleries and other venues displaying works of art open their doors for the popular First Friday Artwalk. A perfect place to start your Artwalk is at the McGuffey Art Center. This gallery space is full of artists at work in their studios accented by a gift shop which carries a variety of members’ art throughout the year. You can pick up a gallery guide to First Friday’s offerings as well as browse the 45 light-filled studios, three galleries and a gift shop at McGuffey itself. The University of Virginia’s Fralin Museum of Art provides a sophisticated, high-tech home for the art contained within its historic walls. In addition to its permanent collection, the museum offers changing exhibitions, accompanied by related programs and publications. Winter exhibitions at the Fralin include contemporary photography of the American West, work by the French artist Emilie Charmy, depictions of the family of Lloyd Walton Patterson and models and photographs of sculptural projects by Patrick Dougherty. Visit the UVA Arts Grounds to see one of Dougherty’s larger-than-life stick sculptures in person. Another unique local treasure of art is the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection of the University of Virginia. This winter, the museum will showcase “Ngau Gidthal (My Stories),” an exhibition of linoleum and woodblock prints by David Bosun, and “Heart of the Desert,” a collection of desert paintings from the Aboriginal communities of Papunya, Yuendumu and Balgo. With a full program of exhibits, lectures, research and education programs, the Kluge-Ruhe collection has a lot to offer the visitor who is interested in indigenous artwork. McGuffey Art Center/Jennifer Jones

Not all art is found indoors. Local nonprofit ArtInSpace celebrates Charlottesville’s artistic diversity by displaying impressive sculptures around the city. Currently, you can find the “Symphonic Gate” on Preston Avenue, “IO” on McIntire Road and the “Louisa Lions” on Elliot Avenue, among others. For more information and the locations of current sculptures on display, visit artinplace.org. Whether you’re merely appreciating or interested in purchasing, Charlottesville’s vibrant, robust art scene shouldn’t be missed. For more details, visit CharlottesvilleWelcomeBook.com.

Best of the Brew Brews to Taste Charlottesville is proud to be home to a myriad of microbrewers, taphouses and establishments that specialize in crafting or carrying outstanding handmade beers and ciders. Thomas Jefferson took great interest in creating not only wines but beers as well. Monticello serves its own official beer: Monticello Reserve Ale, inspired by what Mr. Jefferson labored over and loved in a beer. Any visit wouldn’t be complete without ordering a mug of this heritage ale, available in the Thomas Jefferson Visitor Center Museum Shop and on tap at many local restaurants. Visitors and locals alike can now enjoy fabulous beers and historically crafted ciders from seven local breweries and five cideries. Many of these breweries and cideries include tasting rooms and restaurants allowing guests to enjoy local brews while surrounded by great food, amazing music and stunning mountain views. The Brew Ridge Trail, which includes many of these destinations, starts in historic Charlottesville and meanders through scenic Albemarle and Nelson counties. For a trail map and more info, visit BrewRidgeTrail.com. In addition, a whiskey distillery is expected to open for tours in the near future.

Vineyard Tours & Tastings Vineyards Bountiful & Beautiful Thomas Jefferson dreamt that Virginia wines would one day be plentiful and held in high regard, and today’s local vintners have accomplished that by producing wonderful, award-winning wines. The Monticello American Viticultural Area, which includes Albemarle and the surrounding counties, encompasses more than half of Virginia’s wine country and contains more than 1,000 stunning acres. Now the fifth-largest wine-producing state in the country, Virginia has received both national and international acclaim for its wines and has fulfilled Jefferson’s vision of winemaking in the state. Several dozen area vintners offer up tastings, tours, barrel and vertical flight tastings, multi-course wine-pairing meals and special events for connoisseurs and novices alike. (See the Regional Wine Trail map on page 50.) Our region’s many boutique wineries offer a wonderful selection of wines to share with friends and family, perfect for gift giving.

Wine & Dine Jefferson Style Jefferson’s Love of Food & Wine

A spectacular transformation awaits visitors in the dining room, which has been repainted a brilliant yellow, replacing the Wedgewood blue that inspired so many homeowners across the country. The new chrome yellow color is not so new - it was chosen by Jefferson around 1815 to grace the walls that set the scene for many formal dinners, where rice soup, mutton and even a new treat - ice cream - was served. The dining-room restoration was sponsored by Polo Ralph Lauren and marked the first collaboration with Monticello curators and archaeologists with regards to the dining-room ceramics. Excavations showed that, in Jefferson’s retirement years, the family most often dined on pearlware, an English earthenware similar to porcelain but not as expensive. A set of green, shell-edged pearlware now graces the dining room, on loan from The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. Jefferson’s legacy in design was recently highlighted with a collection of images and an exclusive essay by Pulitzer Prizewinning author Jon Meacham in “The Arts of Living” issue of House Beautiful magazine. 52

Winter 2013-2014

Dining Room, Monticello by Sequoia Design

Dining Room at Monticello: Monticello/Sequoia Design

The restoration of Monticello’s wine cellar was big news for history buffs and wine aficionados alike. A platform above the brick floor allows visitors entry to the wine cellar of our third president, also sometimes called “America’s first wine expert,” to see what it looked like during Jefferson’s retirement years in the first part of the 19th century. Known for advising presidents Washington, Adams, Madison and Monroe on the best wine choices for executive functions, Jefferson’s own cellar contained bottles from France, Portugal, Spain, Hungary, Germany and Italy. Wine after dinner was a daily occurrence at Jefferson’s table! You can get a good look at the workings of the dumbwaiter, used to move wine bottles up to the dining room, which has been restored to its original working condition. Next door to the wine cellar, the “Crossroads” exhibit is designed to show visitors the constant bustle of activity and interaction that kept Monticello running. Try out the model dumbwaiter to see if you would have been able to transport bottles of wine upstairs to guests without mishap!


Portrait of Thomas Jefferson by Rembrandt Peale, (1805): courtesy Monticello

Dining & Gourmet Hot Spots Virginia is considered the birthplace of American wine. Though Jefferson believed that America had the “soil, aspect, and climate of the best wine countries,” his attempts to create his own wine at Monticello largely failed. While Jefferson’s desire to have great wines locally available was never fulfilled during his lifetime, thanks to his unrelenting advocacy we can all now raise our glasses and revel in his dream come to fruition.

Monticello’s Wine Cellar Exhibit: by Phillip Beaurline, courtesy Monticello

The Thomas Jefferson Foundation, the owner and operator of Monticello, partnered with Piedmont Virginia Community College to plant an educational vineyard on Montalto, the “high mountain” rising 410 feet above the famed Monticello. Monticello’s assistant director of gardens and grounds, Gabriele Rausse, supervised the creation of the vineyard. Recently students in the college’s viticulture and enology program planted blocks of pinot noir on the slope of Montalto overlooking the orchards at Monticello. A fitting purpose for Jefferson’s first land purchase! Go online and visit monticello.org to find out details about tours, history and Jefferson’s love of the grape. To Jefferson!

Wine & Dine Jefferson Style Fresh Local Foods Charlottesville lies among a few beautiful counties — including Albemarle, Nelson, and Orange — whose rich agricultural history and farm community are well-loved and supported by our many local restaurants. Well before so-called locavores arrived in the headlines, many of our restaurants were already building their reputations on the quality of the local food they supplied to their grateful customers. Area chefs take great pride in creating memorable meals and they also enjoy letting the artisan’s hand show through when plating locally crafted cheese, charcuterie, jam and wine. It is no exaggeration to say that local chefs and restaurateurs are friends with the growers, farmers and brewers who supply their establishments. Take note of the farms and artisanal ventures mentioned by name on menus, for you may encounter some of the people behind these provisions at the farmers market or find their products on the shelves of a specialty store — the perfect souvenir or gift. This confluence — exciting flavors, fresh ingredients, food producers’ mutual admiration, and Virginia’s regional character — have been captured in the stunning photography and enlightened narratives of “Charlottesville Commons,” a book by local photographers and food lovers Sarah Cramer Shields and Andrea Hubbell. Founders of the local blog Beyond the Flavor, Shields and Hubbell worked with writer Jenny Paurys to tell the stories of the men and women whose farms, businesses, and restaurants come to mind when we talk about Charlottesville’s abundance of great food. The book’s pages will draw you into the lives of cidermakers, bakers, foragers, and caterers — just as the promise of their creations will draw you out of your daily routine and into a new habit of seeking out a taste of what is distinctly Charlottesville. What “Charlottesville Commons” expresses so perfectly is the simplicity, the commitment, and the celebratory approach that makes the local food community here unique — and that earned Charlottesville a spot among the Top Ten Tastiest Towns in the South by Southern Living. Even Forbes gushed about our embarrassment of (local food) riches, calling Charlottesville the “locavore” capital of the world! “Charlottesville Commons” is available at beyondtheflavor.com and select local retailers.

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 recently 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! You’ll find that locals go out of their way to make you feel at home here — whether its with a simple wave hello as you pass one another on the Downtown Mall or by providing detailed directions to the nearest trail to enjoy the spectacular winter vistas. Now that you know the best places in town to celebrate your move to the area, check out the list to the right for the nitty gritty details of getting settled in your new home. We welcome you!

Becoming aa Local Local Becoming The Scoop on UVA

The University of Virginia is a bastion of tradition founded by Thomas Jefferson, the most popular man in town. Those who are fond of him often refer to him as TJ or Mr. Jefferson. Whether you’re preparing to enter its hallowed halls for a degree or enjoying a weekend in town, here is your guide to local lingo. We proudly cheer on our Orange and Blue, “The Cavaliers” — “Cavs” for short or “Wahoos.” What’s a Wahoo? Legend has it that Washington & Lee baseball fans dubbed the UVA players “wahoos” during their fierce in-state rivalry back in the 1890s. By 1940, “Wahoos” was in general use to denote University students or events relating to them. The abbreviated “Hoos” sprang up later in student newspapers. The area on which UVA sits is called “Grounds,” not “campus,” and freshmen here are called “first-years.” The large, domed building with Mr. Jefferson’s great statue is the Rotunda. It faces a huge grass courtyard known as “The Lawn,” surrounded by historic residences that are now coveted student and faculty residences. From the steps of the Rotunda you can see “The Corner,” the area located at the intersection of University Avenue and the central entrance to UVA, the Honor Gate. Always abustle, the Corner has a great selection of casual restaurants with college prices and Hollymead trendy shops that give it a cool vibe.

Getting Settled at UVA

Courtesy of Virginia Athletics Media Relations

To see the grounds up close, take a guided historical tour of the Rotunda and Academical Village. They are offered daily (except during the three-week holiday break in December and January) and meet inside the main entrance of the Rotunda. Or you can choose to stroll the grounds on your own with a self-guided tour - no matter how you choose to explore, there are several attractions that you should not miss. The Rotunda is one of Charlottesville’s most iconic structures, designed by Jefferson after the Pantheon in Rome. It sits majestically on one end of the Lawn and was the original site of the school’s library. Jefferson himself is said to have handpicked every book that was originally housed in the domed structure. The Academical Village flanks the Rotunda and surrounds the rectangular Lawn. The village consists of 10 pavilions, each of which housed faculty and held classrooms for various subjects. The larger pavilions are linked by 54 smaller, single-student rooms. Be sure to stroll through the beautiful pavilion gardens and check out the self-supporting serpentine walls, designed by Jefferson. The design and shape are both aesthetic and functional. The S-shape allows for the wall to be only one-brick thick and mostly self-supporting, as well as offering alcoves for beautiful trees and colorful flowers in these classically designed gardens.

The University Chapel is another must-see, though it wasn’t part of the original plans for the school. This beautiful stone chapel was a late addition to the University, built in 1889. While no longer used for services, it is still a popular place for weddings. (Bookings are chosen by lottery a year in advance so, if you’re interested — plan early!)

UVA. Photo by Jennifer Jones

The University of Virginia has also been home to a number of recognizable names over the years. Many writers have walked the grounds, including David Baldacci and Linda Fairstein. William Faulkner was UVA’s first Writer-in-Residence. Accordingly, the Special Collections Library has a significant collection of Faulkner’s personal papers and manuscripts, as well as one of Faulkner’s jackets! The school has also seen its fair share of media and entertainment personalities, such as Tina Fey and Katie Couric. Some other big names include Robert F. Kennedy, Tiki Barber and Charles T. Pepper, the namesake of the soft drink Dr Pepper. President Woodrow Wilson attended in 1879, but left due to health reasons. And it would be remiss not to mention the university’s most famous drop-out, Edgar Allan Poe! ewcomer ’ s S pecial S ection NN ewcomer ’ s S pecial S ection

To prevent parking frustration, here are a few tips to keep in mind while visiting the University of Virginia. First, there are two parking garages open to visitors at an hourly rate: the Central Grounds garage on Emmet Street (located underneath the University Bookstore and near the Lawn) and the Culbreth Road garage (convenient for visiting UVA’s Fralin Museum of Art or attending a play at Culbreth Theatre). UVA also offers a temporary parking permit for the lots around John Paul Jones Arena, ideal for folks visiting for a half-day or more.

With temperate climates, beautiful scenery, expert medical care and a thriving cultural environment, it should come as no surprise that Charlottesville is a popular retirement location. Learning institutions such as Piedmont Virginia Community College and UVA’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) offer courses to suit all interests – “Understanding Opera” and “Genetics Then and Now” are two recent OLLI classes – and its outings have included adventures in Memphis, Greece and Brazil. Many local gyms and fitness facilities also offer senior classes. And, the golf courses, tennis courts and walking trails are very popular, too. Where to Retire magazine recently named Charlottesville as one of the country’s “Dynamic Locales For Walkable Living.” Plus, there are many rewarding volunteer opportunities available locally, and our award-winning Senior Center has a great mix of programs and travel choices, such as a jaunt to Nashville or a trip to Ireland. Charlottesville is also proud to be home to two great medical centers, the University of Virginia Health System and Martha Jefferson Hospital, both offering outstanding health care on the cutting edge of medicine. With the Charlottesville Albemarle Airport as a convenient gateway to a world of destinations and the coast only a couple of hours away, it’s no wonder Money Magazine rated Charlottesville as the #2 place to retire young!

With outstanding veterinarian care, pet-friendly hotels and outings and extensive outdoor parks and trails, Charlottesville is the ideal location for those with pets. Take a stroll along the brick-paved Downtown Mall where your pup will be happy to find refreshment at the many water bowls shop owners place outside of their stores just for this purpose. When the weather is warm, well-behaved pets are allowed to join their owners in the outdoor seating areas of some of the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finest restaurants. Be sure to take your pooch to one of the local dog parks where they can frolic off-leash. Darden Towe Park, Azalea Park and Chris Greene Lake Park all include areas specific for dogs. While pets are allowed within nearby Shenandoah National Park, there are some trails where pets are prohibited so be sure to check nps.gov/shen before you head out on your hike. There are also plenty of wineries in the area that are happy to accommodate owners and their pets, and some vineyards even host special pet-friendly events like Keswick Vineyardsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yappy Hoursâ&#x20AC;? where visitors can check out lovable animals available for adoption through local shelters.

N ewcomer ’ s S pecial S ection

Robin Bethke

Charlottesville, named for Queen Charlotte Sophia of England and founded in 1762, is an inspiring setting to call home, as is the surrounding Albemarle County, named in honor of William Anne van Keppel. He was the second Earl of Albemarle and served as Governor General of the county from 1734 to 1735. We’re in the center of Virginia, surrounded by gentle rivers, rolling green pastures, mild seasons and an easy two-and-a-half-hour drive to Washington, D.C. One reason Charlottesville has so many transplanted residents is that it’s a small city – just over 10.4 square miles, with 43,500 residents – but it has the trappings of a big one. Musical acts and dramatic performances, fine dining, lovely shops... all are available in abundance. Covering 726 square miles, the county’s population is more than double that of the city, at about 100,500. Both city and county are fascinating places to explore and wonderful locales to call home, and we welcome you!
