Living History Sites is excited to announce our Summer Presidential Homes Tour in the Charlottesville, Virginia area. 

We will be bringing you the inside scoop on our third president Thomas Jefferson's stunning main home, Monticello. We will cover the home, grounds, gardens, slave quarters and what you need to know to get the most out of your Monticello visit. We will also take a trip up to his Poplar Forest summer retreat, an octagonal home! 

Just down the road from Monticello, we will explore James Monroe's Ash Lawn-Highlan, our fifth president and bring you the information you need to know to make the most of your trip to visit these stunning homes. 

Michie Tavern is also on our list, we will be going on a tour of this Revolutionary Era tavern and meeting place that played such an important part in the political arena of it's day. We will try the hearty Mid-day Fare and share the experience with you.

We will spend a day at our 4th president, the "Father of our Constitution," James Madison's lovely Montpelier. We will explore the home he shared with Dolley Madison and share their slice of history with our LivingHistorySites.com readers.

We will also explore the charming city of Charlottesville and bring you face to face with Thomas Jefferson's favorite legacy, the University of Virginia. Living History Sites will explore restaurants, great places to stay. Since it is Emily's birthday, you know we will be looking for a cupcake or two to celebrate her big day!
