What makes Charlottesville unique?
Charlottesville has a unique and interesting mix of citizens which helps create a very lively and flourishing community. A community that always welcomes new ideas and expressions in every media possible. To be able to combine all kinds of art, music, cultures with business is a constant and existing way of living in Charlottesville. Our town has to me the big mind of a whole continent in a place with a small town feeling. It's a place for the young and thriving at the same time nourishes families only to peacefully be enjoyed by the elderly.
It is a place I proudly call my home!!
