Springtime is full of excitement. Warmer air finds its way in and we can finally spend more time outside- something we long for all winter!
Spring in Charlottesville is a step above other places we’ve lived or visited- there really is something magical about this city during this season. It isn’t something to be missed.
Here are three reasons you need to visit us and experience Charlottesville in the spring.
1. Everything is Blooming. Of course, everything is blooming in the spring anywhere you go. But Charlottesville has a lot of trees- it has even been considered “Tree City USA.” So with a lot of trees comes a lot of beautiful blossoming. The streets are literally lined with blooming trees and it gives the city a magical feel. There’s nothing quite like it. Plus, the weather is so pleasant most of the spring with temperatures perfect for enjoying the outdoors (not too hot and definitely not too cold!)
2. The City Market opens. The first Saturday in April brings the opening day of The City Market. This is a farmers market that takes over one of the parking lots downtown and is full of fresh produce, local vendors selling delicious food and drinks, and even handmade goods. It is the perfect way to spend a Saturday morning in the springtime in Charlottesville, and you can follow it with a walk on the Downtown Mall which is right next to the market.
3. Wineries. Need we say more? It is the absolute perfect time to visit the wineries. The weather is great for sitting outside and sipping wine at one of the hundreds of beautiful vineyards that surround Charlottesville. There are even tour options that will take you around if you’d like to visit several and don’t want to worry about driving.
We could continue to list more and more reasons to visit in Spring, but these ones take the cake. If you’re thinking of visiting in the spring, why not book right now? We have a special running if you book before the end of March (you can stay with us anytime this year, just book in March). Check out more details about the special in our last post.
