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.
Kick off your visit on the 26th (Fri): steep yourself in history at James Madison's Montpelier, steep yourself in history at James Monroe's Highland, and then admire the natural beauty at Monticello. Here are some ideas for day two: explore and take pictures at Carter Mountain Orchard, then contemplate the long history of Michie Tavern ca. 1784, then browse the exhibits of Frontier Culture Museum, and finally admire the striking features of University of Virginia.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Charlottesville vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

In July, daily temperatures in Charlottesville can reach 88°F, while at night they dip to 68°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
