Welcome to CharlottesvilleFamily 

We’re so glad you’re here and hope you love all the new features! Be sure to check back often as new content is added daily. We started this award-winning online and print magazine in 1998 and couldn’t be prouder to see how families continue to count on us for 25 years to help “Make Parenting Easier & Growing Up Fun!” We want you to have more time for the important stuff—like finger painting and nature walks. Please send us a note with ideas you may have and watch for a printed magazine in your mailbox this Summer.
