We are happy to arrange off-site team building activities, including golf, tennis, and skeet shooting. Charlottesville, Virginia, is home to wineries, horse country, historic homes and gardens, and a lively downtown pedestrian area, locally known as the Downtown Mall.

​DOWNTOWN MALL: The heart of downtown Charlottesville has an outdoor mall with an abundance of eclectic restaurants and shops lining either side. During the summer, Friday nights shine with concerts under the stars.

UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA & THE CORNER: Thomas Jefferson’s University is a short drive away, featuring the recently renovated Rotunda and Edgar Allen Poe’s room. Along the University runs ‘The Corner,’ a collection of college restaurants, bars, and shops.

HISTORIC TOURS: Several United States Presidents called the Charlottesville area home. A 10-minute drive leads you up the hill to Monticello, Thomas Jefferson’s homestead. Monticello’s rich experience includes a museum, gardens, and a glimpse inside Jefferson’s private quarters. Ash Lawn-Highland is the restored home of the fifth President of the United States, James Monroe. The 550-acre estate recreates the atmosphere of a working farm with strutting peacocks, spinning and weaving demonstrations, boxwood gardens, and open-hearth cooking demonstrations. Montpelier, James Madison’s home, is approximately an hour away.

VIRGINIA WINE COUNTRY: Several wine trails and viticultural areas surround The Clifton. The Monticello Wine Trail boasts 33 wineries, and the Nelson 151 Trail includes six wineries, three breweries, and cider mills.

​BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS: The Charlottesville area is best known for its outdoor experiences, from hiking the peaks of our Blue Ridge Mountains to hot air ballooning, golfing, fishing, and rafting our rivers. We can pack a picnic for your drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway, with 217 miles of mountaintop views and frequent pull-offs for hikes and sightseeing.

​Once your group booking is confirmed, we’ll connect you with our Front Desk Concierge to customize your Charlottesville experience.
