Not every town has unparalleled vistas, a Cab Franc made at the hands of the same person pouring it, or Dave Matthews and John Grisham walking by as you enjoy lunch at a café on its historic pedestrian mall—but Charlottesville does.

It’s urban and bucolic, historic yet modern. There are boundless hiking trails, wedding venues, wineries, breweries, boutique retail shops, and theaters (not to mention more restaurant seats than there are people to fill them). It’s for the limitless adventurer, the wine-taster, the music-seeker, and the family searching for a new experience.

At Charlottesville Insider, our goal is simple: to showcase Charlottesville by curating our ideas about what makes it unique. Follow our insiders to see what’s new, find exclusive deals, or simply figure out how to spend your day in our favorite city.

Humpback Rock is the perfect hike, with multiple trails to the top so that you can choose the distance you want to go. From the top you can enjoy the breathtaking views from the Blue Ridge while feeling proud for making it up there (also - the shortest trail is only around 45 minutes to the view) 🌄

If you're like us - you're entranced by those videos of people decorating cookies perfectly on the internet. What if we told you there was a class to learn how to make them yourself? Contact @jaclynscookies for more information about booking a class (or just leave the decorating to her while you enjoy the delicious treat)!
