What makes Charlottesville-Albemarle special to you?
Charlottesville has the diversity and social capital of a much larger city, paired with stunning natural beauty just five minutes outside of town. In particular I have always loved Charlottesville’s music scene, from the larger acts at the Jefferson and the Pavilion to the more local ones at The Garage.
Ultimate Charlottesville Saturday?
I would start by picking up some breakfast at Bodo’s and then hike through one of Charlottesville’s many wonderful trails with some friends. Depending on the season, we would stop by Carter’s Mountain for apple picking and then head over to the Downtown Mall for dinner.
