Situated at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Charlottesville is perhaps best known as the home of three of the United States' founding fathers, including Thomas Jefferson.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Trump Winery and University of Virginia. Change things up with these side-trips from Charlottesville: James Madison's Montpelier (in Montpelier Station), Veritas Vineyard & Winery (in Afton) and Bold Rock Hard Cider (in Nellysford). There's lots more to do: do a tasting at Barboursville Vineyards and Historic Ruins, take in nature's colorful creations at Monticello, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Appomattox Court House National Historical Park, and stop by King Family Vineyards.

To find ratings, more things to do, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Charlottesville day trip planner.

In August, plan for daily highs up to 84°F, and evening lows to 65°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
