We visited Monticello with my niece after making a college visit to UVA. Such beautiful countryside. The place was very crowded on our Friday October afternoon. The estate is in fine shape and some excellent upgrades have been made to the visitors center since last I visited about 12 years ago. The tours are run like clockwork - so when they recommend arriving 30 minutes ahead, its best to arrive 30 minutes ahead. We missed our planned house tour and had to take time slot 2 hours later. But we made the most of it, taking in the slavery talk, visiting the gravesite and exploring the grounds and tunnels under the house.
