Spring in Charlottesville
Charlottesville is a real treat in spring – the trees bloom, the grass turns emerald green, and the historic buildings seem to lose their age and become as fresh as they must have been their very first spring. There are so many activities to enjoy, too. Wine festivals, music festivals, art festivals, book festivals and more are starting all over the area, providing entertainment for everyone. The Charlottesville Dogwood Festival is an event that locals and visitors look forward to every year, providing live music and local culture, a carnival and of course the much anticipated Dogwood Parade. Outdoors is the place to be, with all the great scenery and mild weather, and there are so many places to enjoy al fresco dining while looking at the mountain or listening to live music. The Historic Downtown Mall is an amazing venue in spring, and brings both tourists and locals together to enjoy the live music of Fridays After Five while dining at world class restaurants. Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello bursts into bloom with flowers originally planned and planted by its founder. You can learn about what types of things Jefferson grew in time to plant your own garden accordingly.
