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 out of town with these interesting Charlottesville side-trips: Skyline Drive (in Shenandoah National Park), Copper Fox Distillery (in Sperryville) and James Madison's Montpelier (in Montpelier Station). Next up on the itinerary: relax in the rural setting at Carter Mountain Orchard, steep yourself in history at James Monroe's Highland, take in nature's colorful creations at Monticello, and learn about winemaking at Trump Winery.

To find photos, ratings, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Charlottesville trip planner .

In October, plan for daily highs up to 71°F, and evening lows to 49°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
