Charlottesville, City Center Intro.
For so relatively small a town, Charlottesville in the US state of Virginia packs in many highlights. Winery tours, hot-air ballooning, hiking in wilderness areas plus world-class entertainment draw visitors to the area, but it is perhaps the city centre historic properties, malls and museums that draw the biggest crowds. Monticello, former US president Thomas Jefferson's exquisite plantation manor, set in a gorgeous rural setting just a few kilometres from the downtown, where Charlottesville City Centre hotels provide a great range of places to hang your hat for the night. What's more, two other presidents, James Madison and James Monroe, also called the city home. The stately home of James Monroe, Ash Lawn-Highland, isn't far from Monticello. Every summer, a musical performance is held at Ash Lawn-Highland. Central Charlottesville is dominated by Downtown Mall, one of the country's biggest outdoor pedestrian malls, featuring shops, eateries and civic attractions.
