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.
Monticello has been added to your itinerary. On the 12th (Thu), do a tasting at Trump Winery, then steep yourself in history at James Monroe's Highland, then experience rural life at Carter Mountain Orchard, and finally contemplate the long history of Monticello. Here are some ideas for day two: contemplate the long history of James Madison's Montpelier, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, and then admire the striking features of University of Virginia.

To see other places to visit, maps, where to stay, and tourist information, use the Charlottesville itinerary planner .

Founded in 1632 as a fortified settlement on the high ground between two rivers, Williamsburg served as a colonial capital of Virginia for over 80 years.
Venture out of the city with trips to Kings Dominion (in Doswell), The Mariners' Museum & Park (in Newport News) and Richmond (Hollywood Cemetery, St. John's Episcopal Church, & more). The adventure continues: make a splash at Busch Gardens Williamsburg, contemplate the long history of Governor's Palace, explore the galleries of St. Luke's Historic Church & Museum, and get engrossed in the history at Historic Jamestowne.
