If you have a thing about the outdoors, you'll fancy Lake Monticello. Going for a horse ride at nearby Montanova is always a fun thing to do. Lake Monticello Dam has splendid water scenery and it's next to Lake Monticello, and you're sure to bump into some good folks from Palmyra here. Best Western Crossroads Inn & Suites is a nice site to get some rest, and a golf course close by is Lake Monticello Golf Course.
Pleasant family enjoyment waits for you at Charlottesville Ice Park, and since you might be in a lake visiting mood you can always stop by close by Trice Lake.
