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.
James Monroe's Highland and Virginia Safari Park will appeal to museum buffs. Get some historical perspective at Michie Tavern ca. 1784 and Skyline Drive. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Charlottesville: Copper Fox Distillery (in Sperryville), National Museum of the Marine Corps (in Triangle) and River Hill Wine & Spirits (in Luray). And it doesn't end there: explore the striking landscape at The Natural Bridge of Virginia, learn about winemaking at Mountain Cove Vineyards, take in the spiritual surroundings of Holy Comforter Roman Catholic Church, and admire the striking features of University of Virginia.
