Charlottesville/Albemarle Named Best College Town by Southern Living Magazine
10/5/2012

According to Southern Living Magazine, Charlottesville/Albemarle County is one of the best college towns in the south.  This area was chosen based on its overall southern charm, the dedicated and active alumni base, a lively local scene with good, affordable restaurants, independent boutiques, and support of the arts, and a population under 200,000 which magnifies college’s strong impact. The Charlottesville/Albemarle area was highlighted for its rolling vineyards, the Blue Ridge Mountains, and the redbrick Downtown Mall, among other attributes.

Blacksburg was the only other Virginia town to make the list. Read more about Best College Towns here: http://www.southernliving.com/travel/best-college-towns-00417000074763/page24.html
