Gotta Getaway... Charlottesville
You guys ever feel the need to just pack a bag and hit the road? I can only imagine we've all had that urge!
Well, last week I was itching to have a little road trip... so my friend, Liz, from Octavia & Brown (who also happens to be one of my BFF's since I was 5 years old!) came down from NYC and I booked a trip Friday morning for us to head to Charlottesville, Virginia.
After work, we hopped in my car and took off for the hills. Since we're both novice golfers looking to up our game, I turned the trip into a bit of a golf weekend, booking a "Stay and Play" package at the gorgeous and charming Boar's Head Inn.
The Boar's Head is the perfect place for a weekend away. Pools, great wine, delicious food, a spa... and AMAZING golf! Plus, the town of Charlottesville (home to the University of Virginia) is full of character.
We loved grabbing pitchers at Miller's, where Dave Matthew's used to play, while listening to a great Blue Grass band.
After spending a perfect weekend relaxing, we did some major antiquing on our way home. Got to say, we found incredible stuff (stay tuned for pics!).
