About Charlottesville Welcome Book

Enjoying the Sights and Sounds of Jefferson’s Virginia! The elegant Charlottesville Welcome Book reaches out to the thousands of newcomers and to tourists visiting Thomas Jefferson’s home at Monticello, the prestigious University of Virginia and the beautiful Charlottesville-Albemarle region as well as to the many newcomers to our beautiful hometown. In 2012, we were honored to be selected as the official guide to Celebrate250! by the City of Charlottesville.

High quality design, regional maps, thoughtful editorial, targeted state-wide distribution and a strong online presence combine to make this free bi-annual publication a powerful advertising choice for businesses. Each distinct chapter guides readers to the best of Charlottesville shopping, dining, antiques, sports, vineyards, museums, events, attractions and more, and serves to highlight the advertiser when the reader is most interested in making a buying decision. With a quarter-of-a-million copies distributed statewide and a strong online presence, the Charlottesville Welcome Book is a powerful tool to promote Charlottesville area businesses.
