Life is Great in Charlottesville, Virginia

Life is Great in Charlottesville, Virginia

Charlottesville, Virginia America’s #1 Community

Voted “Best College Town in America” by Traveler’s Today, Charlottesville Virginia is on my list of places to visit. A beautiful area with Blue Ridge Mountain vistas, bucolic country areas, and a vibrant city scene.  Charlottesville has something for everyone–historic significance and beautiful architecture, least not the fine designs of Thomas Jefferson.  Enjoy great restaurants (many featuring local food), over 30 wineries, and art and cultural events.  Just over two hours to Washington, D.C., and less than two hours to Virginia Beach. Charlottesville is a healthy place to live with excellent medical facilities. The job market is strong with innovative industries and lively business development.
