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've now added University of Virginia to your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to The Rising Sun Tavern (in Fredericksburg), Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center (in Chantilly) and National Museum of the Marine Corps (in Triangle). And it doesn't end there: admire the natural beauty at Monticello, contemplate the long history of James Monroe's Highland, take in the history at Manassas National Battlefield Park, and relax in the rural setting at Carter Mountain Orchard.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airports are Washington Dulles International Airport, Richmond International Airport and Roanokeā€“Blacksburg Regional Airport. In January in Charlottesville, expect temperatures between 8°C during the day and -3°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
