My friend had a family event to attend in his hometown of Charlottesville, Virginia, so I went along for the ride. I spent my last say in the DMV (DC-Maryland-Virginia) area in a quieter setting, and it was a welcome reprieve and perfect ending to my weekend. Just two hours outside of Washington D.C., Charlottesville is a city with a lot of charm and a lot of history. A history that is depending on who ask, one of great leaders or painful reminders. A few of the pictures I’ll share in this post, I went back and forth about sharing because they are painful reminders of a horrid time in America’s history. I decided to share them because I don’t only want to share the shiny and appealing parts of any place I visit. I want to be honest with my readers and share the entirety of my experiences, not withholding anything. But with that said, I greatly enjoyed my time in Charlottesville, visiting downtown’s Main Street and the adjacent historical landmarks and monuments as well as the University of Virginia’s campus. I hope these picture I share do this city beautiful city justice and I hope to visit again one day. Enjoy a day in Charlottesville, Virginia!
