Tips från lokalbefolkningen
Restored home of the 5th president of the U. S., author of the “Monroe Doctrine”, and close friend of Thomas Jefferson. James Monroe's 550-acre estate recreates the atmosphere of a working farm. Stroll through the ancient boxwood gardens, tour the charming frame and brick house, and observe spinning…
Right next to Monticello is James Monroe’s home. It is more low key but a really nice way to spend your time at another Presidents’ home.
Formerly known as Ashlawn, the lovely home of our 5th U.S. president is the historic and current neighbor of Thomas Jefferson's Monticello.
Thomas Jefferson wasn’t the only President to live in Charlottesville. Be sure to visit James Monroe’s Ashlawn/Highland as well. Just a few minutes beyond Monticello, it’s worth the trip.
Our Airbnb is literally across the road from Highland. It's a historic place with a museum and walking trails.

“Check out the Rotunda (must go up in the dome!!), check out the basement. Stroll down the lawn, take a right at the bottom and go past the outdoor ampitheater. If you have kids go to the whispering wall, then head out past the Berlin Wall exhibit and then across the street back to Edgar Allen Poe's dorm room. Spend some extra time seeng the grounds or go grab a bite on "the corner" where students like to hang-out. Fast casual you have to try "Roots", but several good restaurants.”
