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 some historical perspective at Mulberry Row and The Rising Sun Tavern. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at The Glass Palette - Interactive Glass Art Studio and High Bridge Trail State Park. Get out of town with these interesting Charlottesville side-trips: Little Washington Winery (in Washington), Fredericksburg (Hugh Mercer Apothecary Shop, Mary Washington House, & more) and Copper Fox Distillery (in Sperryville). There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Gari Melchers Home and Studio at Belmont, examine the collection at Camera Heritage Museum, get engrossed in the history at Stonewall Jackson's Headquarters, and contemplate the long history of McLean House.

In May, daily temperatures in Charlottesville can reach 76°F, while at night they dip to 55°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
