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 explore and learn at National Museum of the Marine Corps and Lee Chapel and Museum. Visit James Madison's Montpelier and Michie Tavern ca. 1784 for their historical value. Explore Charlottesville's surroundings by going to Manassas National Battlefield Park (in Manassas), The Rising Sun Tavern (in Fredericksburg) and Natural Bridge (The Natural Bridge of Virginia & Virginia Safari Park). The adventure continues: admire the natural beauty at Monticello, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Appomattox Court House National Historical Park, steep yourself in history at Stonewall Jackson House, and take an in-depth tour of Frontier Culture Museum.
