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.

Have you ever checked out some of the amazing experiences our neighbors in Nelson County have to offer? One of our personal favorites is Crabtree Falls, which is the highest vertical-drop cascading waterfall east of the Mississippi River🌊🌿

The first overlook is just a few hundred feet from the parking lot for travelers of all ages and abilities. More adventuresome hikers may continue along the 3-mile trail to the views of the falls and vistas of the Tye River Valley. The trails are open from dusk to dawn.

Check out more information on Crabtree falls, along with other fun activities on our "12 Unique Things to Do in Charlottesville" Guide (link in bio)!
