Charlottesville, in central Virginia, is home to Monticello and The University of Virginia in Charlottesville.

Both were designed by Thomas Jefferson and together form a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Many of Charlottesville’s public buildings are made of brick and built in a Jeffersonian style, and many private homes are colonial.

The town itself is steeped in history and culture. Of the eight U.S. presidents who came from Virginia, two (Thomas Jefferson and James Monroe) were from Charlottesville and two more came from neighboring counties. And the surrounding area was a major battlefield during both the Revolutionary and Civil Wars.

(a) indoors-oriented, and therefore not as linked to weather conditions for enjoyment
(b) relatively physically accessible, while also not being physically demanding.
Featuring mainly indoors-oriented historical or contemporary attractions.
