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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like James Madison's Montpelier and James Monroe's Highland. Let the collections at National Museum of the Marine Corps and Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center capture your imagination. Get out of town with these interesting Charlottesville side-trips: Veritas Vineyard & Winery (in Afton), The Rising Sun Tavern (in Fredericksburg) and Bold Rock Hard Cider (in Nellysford). And it doesn't end there: do a tasting at Barboursville Vineyards and Historic Ruins, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Appomattox Court House National Historical Park, contemplate the long history of Jefferson Vineyards, and explore and take pictures at Monticello.
