Charlottesville is famous for its exquisite historic farms. The terrain offers rolling, verdant hills and bucolic farmland with the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains always within view.
The majority of farms around Charlottesville are horse farms as the temperature and landscape are idyllic. Keswick hosts the nationally syndicated Keswick Horse Show. Two of the oldest fox hunts in America, the Farmington Hunt & Keswick Hunt, are just outside the City. The Foxfield Steeplechase is held twice a year. And polo is played both at the University of Virginia as an NCAA sport, and for fun at King Family Vineyard on Sundays in the Fall and Spring (all YOU have to do is drink their wines).
Speaking of wine, Charlottesville is home to over 18 scenic and tasty vineyards. This is what we do on Saturdays and Sundays when not at a UVA Football game.
