Charlottesville for the Holidays

Charlottesville for the HolidaysCharlottesville's versatility means that there is always something exciting happening - it's hard to imagine that it can be even more interesting... until the holidays! Right outside your Charlottesville apartment you can explore one-of-a-kind places to find unique gifts, make special memories in beautiful settings, or celebrate a favorite tradition in a different way. Get started with a few of our favorite ways to celebrate the holidays in Charlottesville...

To begin the holiday season properly, you'll want to plan to see the Grand Illumination of the Christmas tree on Charlottesville's Historic Downtown Mall. Indulge in some world class comfort food at The Pie Chest, and then start your holiday shopping amidst the Mall's many unique shots while the kids can get their faces painted and visit with Santa. The event kicks off Charlottesville's Holiday Market, an amazing collection of vendors with one-of-a-kind offerings including local food, crafts, gifts, and so much more.

Monticello at Christmas in CharlottesvilleMake a plan to visit Monticello during the holidays! This is your chance to enjoy an intimate tour of the house after dark and imagine the holidays of the past. The gift shop at Monticello offers more than mere tourist mementos, featuring beautiful, well crafted food, art, and products from the property and the surrounding area. Enjoy a traditional meal with a good friend and amidst the rustic decorations at Michie Tavern on your way up to Monticello for a very special memory.

Step back in history at James Monroe's Highland and plan to join an after hours tour of the hearth and home of the late president. Chefs will prepare delicious desserts while you take a guided tour by candlelight. And you won't want to miss the grand holiday lunch buffet at the Boar's Head Inn, where you can indulge in outstanding gourmet fare in cheerful and lush holiday decor.

Nutcracker Christmas in CharlottesvilleThe heart of the season is giving, and many of us find that giving back is our favorite part of the holiday. Countless volunteer programs in our area will be grateful for your help during this busy season. Organizations like Meals on Wheels, the Salvation Army, and Good Will are trusted, reliable programs that you can feel good about helping and sending your donations, while organizations like the Ishan Gala Foundation will make if possible for you to create a holiday for families with children suffering from diseases.

Remember to invite Grandma!! Take the whole family to the historic Paramount theater for a screening of White Christmas that is sure to be the highlight of special memories. The enchantment and wonder of dance creates magic as the Charlottesville Ballet performs a sparkling version of The Nutcracker .

Before the rush and hurry of the season fades away, we look to the new year and commemorate the past year with one more holiday party. Charlottesville's renowned First Night Virginia is the perfect way to wrap up the holiday. This family friendly extravaganza is a stunning display of performers, entertainers, and artists that allows you to involve the entire family as you ring in the New Year!

First Night New Years Eve in Charlottesville VaWhen the kids are tucked safely at home in bed, it's time to boogie on down to the NY IX - Studio 54 at the Ix Art Park or a New Year's celebration that will take you back in time! Enjoy live music featuring the songs of Earth Wind and Fire, DJs playing hits from the late 70s, and crazy disco inspired costumes that will help you forget 2018 and start 2019 on the good foot.

So enjoy a very special holiday - your Charlottesville apartment is at the center of the celebration.
