Fluvanna County is located in the Central Virginia region. The County was named for the Fluvanna River, the name given to James River west of Columbia. Fluvanna means "Anne's River" in honor of Anne, Queen of Great Britain (reigned until 1714). Located in the Piedmont above the fall line, the county has the James and Rivanna rivers running through it. It was named after the Fluvanna River, which was its colonial name, and is now known as the James River.
Golf is popular in Fluvanna County with two public courses, Lake Monticello Golf Course and Laurel Ridge Golf Club. And with its proximity between Richmond and Charlottesville, it is easy to enjoy other outdoors activities and cultural events.

SKYLINE DRIVE... The Skyline Drive runs 105 miles north and south along the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Shenandoah National Park and is the only public road through the park. You can enter Shenandoah at four places: Front Royal near Rt. 66 and 340, Thornton Gap at Rt. 211, Swift Run Gap at Rt. 33, and Rockfish Gap at Rt. 64 and Rt. 250 (also the northern entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway). It takes about three hours to travel the entire length of the park on a clear day.
As you travel along Skyline Drive you will notice mileposts on the west side (right side if you are traveling south) of the road. These posts help you find your way through the park and help you locate areas of interest. The mileposts begin with 0.0 at Front Royal and continue to 105 at the southern end of the park.
The speed limit is 35 mph, so you can roll down your windows, feel the breeze and experience every curve and turn of this beautiful drive. There are 75 overlooks that offer stunning views of the Shenandoah Valley to the west or the rolling Piedmont to the east. The park purposely leaves the roadsides unmowed so wildflowers put on a show all year long.
