We visited Monticello and other cites in Charlottesville, VA for a quick getaway before our kids (ages 10 and 12) went back to school last year. We were pleasantly surprised at how much our kids enjoyed the tour of Monticello. The tour was well-done and fun for kids. We also visited James and Dolly Madison's plantation in the area, and the University of Virginia campus which houses some additional beautiful architecture of Thomas Jefferson. The trip ended up being one of the best 3-day excursions we've ever taken as a family. Lots to do and see in Charlottesville; although Monticello was tops, the other places we visited were really great too.
