A Delightful Place to Learn and Play
Located in Central Virginia just two and a half hours south of Washington, D.C., Charlottesville offers the best of both worlds: the charm and intimacy of a small town coupled with the vibrant culture and creative energy of a booming city. Off Grounds, breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountain hiking trails and award-winning restaurants draw as much interest during daytime hours as the nightlife of the local music, theater, art scenes. Meet up with a few friends at one of the town’s many inviting coffee shops or take in a show by a nationally touring act with 14,000 other fans at John Paul Jones Arena.
What’s more, proximity to Washington, D.C. and New York means you can always plan exciting weekend trips. And if you're looking to go farther afield, Charlottesville Albemarle Airport (CHO) offers direct flights to New York, Philadelphia, Atlanta, and Chicago.
