It is a short 2 hour drive to Washington DC and only 2 hours to the beach. In addition to the stunning natural beauty of Charlottesville, the city is also culturally rich: home to the Virginia Film Festival, Virginia Festival of the Book, and the Virginia Festival of the Photograph. It is a great music town: the birthplace of the Dave Matthews Band, and a concert venue for bands like U2 and the Rolling Stones.
