Our Insiders

We’re your guide to all things Charlottesville—from the best places to sniff, swirl, and sip with friends to how to survive a Central Virginia winter (hint: You’ll need boots, and we can help you find the perfect pair).

If you’re a visitor, there’s no better way to learn the ins and outs of the area than to lean on our team of insiders, who’ve been indulging in all this city has to offer—work, play, and in between—for decades. And it’s paid off: Our insider gets you access to exclusive deals and discounts, which we’re happy to pass on to you, along with our curated picks for eating, drinking, shopping, and sporting.

If you’re new here, wait for our cues. (And if you’re a local, click here to apply to be an insider.)
