“The university that TJ built. We are not biased or anything, but it’s the best university in the world. (We understand there are arguments for and against this claim.) But, truly, if you haven’t visited UVA, you should. The Lawn and Rotunda are historic and you’ll find them very beautiful and interesting, whether or not you are a ‘Hoo. Bring a picnic and a frisbee and hang out on the Lawn, gazing at the architectural genius of our third President. When you’re done, walk down to The Corner and enjoy the used bookstores, tons of restaurants and coffee shops, and soak in the vibe of this vibrant college town. We love Roots (yummy healthy bowls), Asado Wing/Taco, Boylan Heights (grass-fed burgers), and Mellow Mushroom for pizza.”

“Thomas Jefferson wasn’t the only President to live in Charlottesville. Be sure to visit James Monroe’s Ashlawn/Highland as well. Just a few minutes beyond Monticello, it’s worth the trip.”

“Located next to Monticello and Michie Tavern, Carter Mountain Orchard is family-owned and operated. The mountaintop location affords spectacular views of Charlottesville, the Piedmont, and the Blue Ridge Mountains. It is so much more than an apple orchard! ”
