Charlottesville is truly one place that has it all. This central Virginia city's population of 47,000 live in the number one ranked place in the United States to live. It's walkable, it's got a great cost of living, it's family friendly and has a very good climate. It sits on the Rvanna River and the Smokey Mountains are just 20 miles to the west.
It played important roles in both the Revolutionary and Civil Wars yet its architecture was untouched by either. When you start the process of finding a Charlottesville apartment, you'll quickly realize the options you have.
Three Presidents Slept Here
For such a small city, Charlottesville has many attractions. It was home to three Presidents (Jefferson, Madison and Monroe) which not only provides their homes for visiting but scholarly study as well. It is home to the University of Virginia which provides many cultural activities as well.
The downtown area houses several excellent live performance theatres as well as an art museum. The Shenandoah National Park offers so many recreational activities that it will be a constant place to visit. There are a number of parks, golf courses and other outdoor venues throughout the city. Regardless of where your Charlottesville apartment is located, you'll be close to things to do.
You'll find great places to eat just as easily too. Start the day at the Bluegrass Grill and Bakery which has some of the best pancakes anywhere. There are plenty of ethnic cuisines to choose from and many are locally owned. Zocalo is a wonderful place to sit and watch the world go by while you have very good food. For more upscale dining, Ristorante Al Dente gets all the reviews for their food and wine list. Hamilton's and Fleurie also rank right up there. You won't be disappointed.
At night, the scene can be what ever you want. Since it is a college town you'll find plenty of cheaper, lively places to drink. Coupe Deville's and the White Spot are two places to start. If your taste runs more toward live music, Miller's Restaurant presents some of the best music in town as do a couple of the coffee houses. Michael's Bistro is the local artsy dive bar and a lot of fun. Once in your Charlottesville apartment, you'll find your new personal favorites, but these give you a place to start.
