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.
Venture out of the city with trips to The Rising Sun Tavern (in Fredericksburg), National Museum of the Marine Corps (in Triangle) and Skyline Drive (in Shenandoah National Park). Next up on the itinerary: relax in the rural setting at Carter Mountain Orchard, admire the natural beauty at Monticello, steep yourself in history at James Monroe's Highland, and take in the dramatic natural features at Natural Bridge State Park.

In October, daily temperatures in Charlottesville can reach 71°F, while at night they dip to 49°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
