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: Copper Fox Distillery (in Sperryville), Skyline Drive (in Shenandoah National Park) and Luray Caverns (in Luray). Next up on the itinerary: experience rural life at Carter Mountain Orchard, contemplate the long history of James Monroe's Highland, admire the striking features of University of Virginia, and take in nature's colorful creations at Monticello.

In September, daily temperatures in Charlottesville can reach 80°F, while at night they dip to 60°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
