The RTF is a 20+ mile trail loop that goes all the way around Charlottesville. There are a couple of trail heads very close to our house, one just before Megan Ct on the right at the end of an unnamed street and one on River Rd in the VFW parking lot (this one is paved and runs along the river all the way down to Riverview Park. Great for bike rides & jogs).

A great place to see local wildlife. There is a network of trails that can be explored for days, and the South Fork Rivanna Reservoir runs along many of them which make them a great place to see aquatic life such as frogs, turtles, beavers and heron. There is also a barn that is open some weekends that provides some local history.

Shopping

The newest shopping center in Charlottesville connects 5th Street and Avon Street., but most importantly, it’s home base for Wegmans, the mega-specialty grocer phenomenon. Nearby, within an ocean of parking, are other less lively big boxes like Field and Stream, and Dick’s Sporting Goods. As important as Wegmans, however, is the evolution of the center as a restaurant capital. More than a dozen restaurants of diverse styles and flavors have their grills on high as they await your visit. What are you waiting for?

This shopping center currently features a 12,500 square foot Trader Joe’s, diverse restaurants and a 65,000 square foot Regal IMAX Theater with 14 screens, that single-handedly sells more tickets annually than Scott Stadium!
