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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Charlottesville: Lexington (Stonewall Jackson Memorial Cemetery & Virginia Military Institute), Luray (The Car and Carriage Caravan Museum & Luray Caverns) and Natural Bridge (Virginia Safari Park & The Natural Bridge of Virginia). The adventure continues: cruise along Skyline Drive, take in the history at Manassas National Battlefield Park, tour the pleasant surroundings at Old Rag Mountain Hike, and learn about all things military at National Museum of the Marine Corps.

For other places to visit, photos, reviews, and other tourist information, read our Charlottesville road trip planning website .

July in Charlottesville sees daily highs of 88°F and lows of 68°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
