Major Attractions in Charlottesville
Beyond being Thomas Jefferson's stomping grounds, Charlottesville vacations give you access to an astounding array of attractions for this relatively small city. Shenandoah National Park is renowned for its breathtaking Appalachian scenery, so when you're looking for a car rental in Charlottesville, make sure to set aside a few hours for its scenic Skyline Drive.
Beyond the historical sites, Charlottesville hotels also offer great access to modern attractions. As the hometown and founding location of the Dave Matthews Band, Charlottesville hosts a thriving indie music scene, and there's never a shortage of concerns and shows at a variety of local venues. Meanwhile, if you love shopping, you won't want to miss the Downtown Mall, one of the most extensive outdoor pedestrian shopping malls in the entire country.
