Things to do

Charlottesville is one of the Southeast’s premiere vacation destinations. Named one of America’s ten best long weekend getaways as the “Best New Place to Drink Wine” (Life, June 2005), Charlottesville has also been named both one of the best places to enjoy outdoor living (Outside Magazine, July 2008) and called “an incubator of creativity” (InStyle, May 2002). Come experience Thomas Jefferson’s ideal city, Virginia’s most delectable food and drink, and the unique charm of this “small town-city” during your time at the Virginia Film Festival.
