ABOUT TSG CHARLOTTESVILLE EDITOR IAN DILLARD:

Ian Dillard came to Charlottesville in 2009 to attend the University of Virginia, from which he graduated with a BA in politics. After finishing at the university, he stayed in the area doing development for an education company. While there, he decided to take his love for fitness to the podium when he became a cycle instructor. Ian recently brought his love for Charlottesville to The Scout Guide, where he serves as Editor of The Scout Guide Charlottesville. He lives in the heart of downtown Cville with his white (sometimes tan) Labradoodle named Jack.

IAN’S THREE FAVORITE REASONS TO VISIT CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINA: 

  1. Virginia Wines paired with Virginia Views. “Our region produces some delicious local wines in some truly spectacular locations, so you can sip your Chardonnay while taking in the beautiful views of the Blue Ridge.”
  2. The University of Virginia and the National History. “Thomas Jefferson’s impact on Charlottesville and the U.S. are on full display in our city, and there are so many opportunities to learn about and experience it, from the Rotunda to Monticello and more.”
  3. The Food Scene. “For a city that’s not that big, Charlottesville is home to a surprising number of amazing restaurants.”
