No one leaves Virginia without visiting T.J's incredible historic home and grounds. It's really where the country learned how to rise to independence and self sufficiency, and to aspire to those characteristics through beauty.Recommended for:

Monticello is the home of Thomas Jefferson a president of the United States. Mr. Jefferson is also buried on site which is not accessible, but can view from top of hill. The house is accessible for wheelchairs with a tight squeeze. Can go to the bottom level of the house to where the 7 day clock ends up at. Accessible bathroom are located at the visitor center down the mountain, the one up top next to the house are not. You will need about 2 to 3 hours to visit.Recommended for:
I went on a lot of road trips as a child, many to battlefields that I always deemed "boring," but our trip to Monticello has always stood out to me. This house is not only architecturally stunning, but has a number of Jefferson's inventions (like secret doors) built in, so that you can't help but say, "That was AWESOME." They also have a supply of $2, so that if you ever buy anything and need change, you'll come home with one of these rarities.Recommended for:

Monticello is the preserved estate of one of our most prominent founding fathers, Thomas Jefferson, our Third President of the United States.
You can take a fascinating tour of the grounds and learn that despite being a slave owner and co-sginer or our declaration of independence, he was also quite a renaissance man, being a writer, farmer, inventor, and politician. amongst other things.

Monticello is a beautiful colonial villa and is an absolute must visit if you are visiting Virginia. The house and the grounds are very pretty, and the museum is an excellent resource to learn more about the life of Thomas Jefferson and the revolutionary era.

Thomas Jefferson's home is well worth the admission. Book online or arrive early as there can be a wait. Give yourself a couple of hours. One of the most fascinating parts of the exhibit are the display of Jefferson's inventions such as a seven day clock.
A beautiful home. We loved that they offered a special tour guide for families with young children. In each room that the guide took us she would give the kids things that they could hold and look at that related to what we were seeing in the room, which allowed the adults time to look around and listen to the history.Recommended for:

We have gone to Monticello twice on our visits with the in-laws and it is an interesting place. Walking through the home of one of our founding fathers is pretty darn cool and now they have a nice visitor center with interactive exhibits for children. My daughter LOVED writing with President Jefferson's polygraph and relaxing on a replica of his bed.Recommended for:
