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.
Get some historical perspective at Appomattox Court House National Historical Park and Monticello. Explore Charlottesville's surroundings by going to Copper Fox Distillery (in Sperryville), James Madison's Montpelier (in Montpelier Station) and Luray Caverns (in Luray). The adventure continues: do a tasting at Trump Winery, contemplate the long history of Michie Tavern ca. 1784, and indulge your taste buds at Jefferson Vineyards.
