Founded in 1762, Charlottesville is a booming southern gem that’s rich in history and fun to discover. For fresh fruit and major views, head to Carter Mountain Orchard, named one of Yelp’s top apple picking spots in the country in 2023. There you can explore the grounds, pick ripe peaches and apples depending on the season, and sip on “divine” apple cider slushies. Satisfy your hunger at soul food spot and community staple, Mel’s Cafe, which Yelp reviewers love for its fried chicken, creamy mac and cheese, and old-school family atmosphere. For adventurous families, take an afternoon drive to Shenandoah National Park, where a variety of hiking options along the Appalachian Trail immerse you in the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains, along with its valleys and waterfalls.
