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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Charlottesville: National Museum of the Marine Corps (in Triangle), Skyline Drive (in Shenandoah National Park) and Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center (in Chantilly). The adventure continues: relax in the rural setting at Carter Mountain Orchard, admire all the interesting features of Monticello, view the masterpieces at C'ville Arts: A Cooperative Gallery, and contemplate the long history of James Monroe's Highland.

For reviews, traveler tips, photos, and tourist information, read our Charlottesville trip planning app .

In September, daytime highs in Charlottesville are 80°F, while nighttime lows are 60°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
