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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Charlottesville: Skyline Drive (in Shenandoah National Park), James Madison's Montpelier (in Montpelier Station) and Luray (Luray Caverns & The Car and Carriage Caravan Museum). There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of University of Virginia, explore and take pictures at Thomas Jefferson's Monticello, and contemplate the long history of Michie Tavern ca. 1784.

To find maps, where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, use the Charlottesville trip planner .

In April in Charlottesville, expect temperatures between 69°F during the day and 46°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
