We've all heard the expression "a picture is worth a thousand words," and while that may be true for most things, we think that a picture of the Charlottesville area in the fall is worth a million words! Maybe even a billion, or a trillion! Whatever the picture-to-word-count ratio, there's no denying that the Charlottesville area is absolutely stunning in the fall. So much so, that for this blog entry, we are going to put the words aside for a little bit and let the pictures do the talking. So without further ado, here are 8 pictures that prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that the Charlottesville area is simply stunning in the fall!

Of course these photos only begin to scratch the surface of the beautiful fall colors that we saw this fall season! And the show isn't over yet! There's still some color to be found in pockets around the city of Charlottesville & Albemarle County. The colors have already peaked up in the mountains, but there's still a little bit of time to enjoy the last vestiges of gorgeous fall colors for a few more days. So for now, we look back fondly on another dazzling season of fall foliage in the Charlottesville area, as we gear up for a fun & festive holiday season ahead! Speaking of which, the winter months are a wonderful time to visit Charlottesville & Albemarle County! More to come in a future post, so stay tuned!
