Fall is the best time of year in Charlottesville; Spring is a close second. The number of fall festivals in the Charlottesville area is amazing.
Enjoy the colors, because you never know; you might not be here next year.
Question from a reader: I am planning a trip to Charlottesville to photograph the fall folliage. It is a day trip and I am trying to figure the best place to go.
Answer: Anytime between the second week of October and the second week of November.
This is a drive that I would recommend – go from Charlottesville to the Blue Ridge Parkway and then to the Skyline Drive. Be patient. It’s likely to be busy â€¦ I assume that the recession is resulting in more staycations this year.
