This is the third post in my new series that talks about the places I want to visit once I finally am able to join my husband at our new home in Virginia.
Today’s attraction is only 20 minutes from my house- it’s closer than where Jimmy works! We drive right by it on the way “into town”.
At Jefferson’s estate, Monticello, you can tour his home and the grounds (gardens, graveyard), watch a film, see a few exhibits and walk a 4 mile trail with views of the mountains,. Of course, there is some shopping and a cafe as well. The visit will make for a very nice Saturday afternoon this fall.
