Green, small and charming Charlottesville located on the footsteps of the Appalachian Mountains has many attractions, among them:
1. Monticello - Jefferson's (US president 1801-1809) plantation manor
2. University of Virginia
3. Ash Lawn-Highland - the home of James Monroe (US president 1817-1825)
4. Michie Tavern (1784)
5. Historic Court Square
6. Downtown Mall (Virginia Discovery Museum there)
I also amazed beautiful architecture of local houses, enjoyed peace and quiet and I tasted and bought Jefferson's wine. I also tried some not at all local food.
Thomas Jefferson's town has long been known as one of the best places in America to go to college, and a terrific place to retire. A 2004 Frommer's survey ranked it as the No. 1 place to live among 400 U.S. cities.
