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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Blue Ridge Balloon. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Blackwater Creek Trail and High Bridge Trail State Park. Escape the urban bustle at Saunders-Monticello Trail and Twin Lakes State Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Stone Mountain Vineyards (in Dyke), Robert Russa Moton Museum (in Farmville) and Canal Basin Square (in Scottsville). There's much more to do: do a tasting at Keswick Vineyards, contemplate the long history of James Madison's Montpelier, take in nature's colorful creations at Monticello, and make a trip to Appomattox Station Battlefield Park.

To see where to stay, photos, ratings, and tourist information, read Charlottesville road trip planner.

In May, daily temperatures in Charlottesville can reach 76°F, while at night they dip to 55°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
