This past weekend we were in Virginia visiting one of my boyfriends best friends and his family. This was my third time in Charlottesville and I love it a little more every time. As we boarded our plane we recognized a few faces from our last flight to Virginia. There is something that always feels familiar about this trip, like coming home. Virginia has a way of welcoming even the newest face with open arms.
Usually before I go on a trip I spend hours researching restaurants, things to do & see (often based on the best interior design). Not for this trip though, luckily for us we have amazing hosts to show us around their city. Our friends never fail to have an itinerary for the weekend, highlighting all their favorite spots. Given their track record of amazing stays, we trust them to do so! I love this city and the people so I wanted to share some of the many reasons I love going back. If you ever find yourself in Charlottesville, VA or are looking for an out-of-the-box vacation destination, here is my city guide of all the best things to do, eat and see!
