When WestJet flies to this destination:
A visit to Charlottesville is all about following the trails. Walk downtown or visit Thomas Jefferson's home at Monticello or his legacy at the University of Virginia to follow the path of early American history. Or dive into one of the many themed "trails" to find activities you're passionate about. Whichever way you go, you're bound to find something to make your visit great.
If art is your thing, the Monticello Artisan Trail will get you on the right track. A network of artisans have come together to create an easy way to tour studios and galleries and participate in events and workshops. Another option is to take in the city's thriving arts and entertainment scene. See famous names in lights at downtown marquees and catch some live music to get your toes tapping.
If you prefer your entertainment in a glass, try the Monticello Wine Trail. Move over Napa – the Virginia landscape offers a natural advantage. Mountains have eroded down into rolling hills that feature subtle differences in altitude and aspect, soil and light, which causes slight differences in grapes from one vine to another. More than 20 vineyards have discovered this secret and share it with visitors through tours and tastings.
Another choice is the Brew Ridge Trail, which will satisfy hops lovers. Virginia was once known as the hops capital of the world, and the brew industry is still going strong. Award-winning small-batch breweries offer handcrafted ales and lagers as well as hard ciders.
If actual outdoor trails are more your style, you'll find undeveloped forests and fields and scenic drives just outside the city. Outdoor enthusiasts can kayak the James or Rivanna rivers, wander through orchards, go for a hike, or try out the area's bike trails.
You can also take your clubs to the region's manicured greens. There are four golf courses to choose from, including links designed by Pete Dye and Associates and an Arnold Palmer Signature Course. On the other end of the dirt spectrum, agritourism will provide insight into the long history of agriculture and the business of farmers in the area.
When you get to Charlottesville, pick a trail, any trail! It will get you where you want to go.
