John Paul Jones Arena History

Opening in time for the 2006-2007 NCAA basketball season, this Charlottesville, Virginia icon has been bringing entertainment in a variety of forms to the scene for quite a while now, with Cavaliers basketball games marking some of the most noteworthy events each and every year. As the Cavs hit the home court and do battle in the always competitive ACC, there are always plenty of unbelievable matchups thanks to a steady stream of some of the most explosive ballers in the country, making all of their games something to behold if you're in the area. Once you're there in the stands alongside thousands of your fellow fans, you'll understand loud and clear what all the excitement is about.

The Arena has been the home too many great events to really count, though some of the highlights include a stop on the Jimmy Buffet tour and Cirque du Soleil, not to mention plenty of others as well. Even though there are plenty of options for entertainment these days, you're way, way off if you think that you're going to top the John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville.

No matter what your taste for entertainment, you're likely to find something that will have you circling your calendar and daydreaming a bit in your cubicle.


Charlottesville, Virginia

More than perhaps anything, Charlottesville is known for being the home for three different presidents – Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and James Monroe. Out of the three, even though Monroe and Madison have own following and certainly made quite an impact on their town and country, Jefferson remains one of the most celebrated and iconic of American symbols, mostly thanks to his seminal contribution while writing the Declaration of Independence. Jefferson would go on to become a very influential president as well and many of the buildings in Charlottesville are actually designed in a so-called Jefferson style of architecture, helping make this a city that will always remember the legacy of one of our most famous forefathers.

Since being founded back in 1762, Charlottesville has obviously gone through plenty of changes, giving it a rich history to match its very bright future. Virginia remains one of the epicenters of politics of today thanks to its early roots, though you may not be thinking about politics if you take a look at the entertainment calendar and see all of the different options in Charlottesville. This is a town that is best experienced first-hand, making it the perfect destination for a road trip.
