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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore National Museum of the Marine Corps and Thomas Jefferson Foundation. Get in touch with nature at Skyline Drive and Mattaponi Springs Golf Club. Change things up with these side-trips from Charlottesville: Shenandoah National Park (Appalachian Trail, Old Rag Mountain Hike, & more), James Madison's Montpelier (in Montpelier Station) and Wine Loves Chocolate (in Washington). There's much more to do: learn about winemaking at Trump Winery Tasting Room, relax in the rural setting at Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards, identify plant and animal life at Virginia Safari Park, and make a trip to The Natural Bridge of Virginia.
