We'll be spending a few days in Standardsville, VA at the end of May. I'm considering a day trip to visit the cemetery and house during that time. I have a few questions I hope someone can answer:
1) How horrible is the traffic, and just figuring out where to go? We are from a rural area and not used to driving in heavy traffic on a daily basis. This would be a Wednesday, last week in May.
2) How much time should we allow for a visit? We'd want to walk around the cemetery, and also tour Lee's house.
3) I read in a different thread where someone mentioned it's possible to walk from the cemetery to the Lincoln Memorial. Is that easy and safe to do? Are there any other memorials nearby that it's possible to walk to?
