Monticello

Beautiful, impressive, intriguing, controversal. Thomas Jefferson’s estate is as brilliant and curious as he was. The visit is a delightful twist of beauty, (a creative and unique date spot), history (intriguing insight to the life and thoughts of a  founding father and author of our country’s constitution), and controversy (the awe and intrigue manifested while walking through those corridors was ironically built upon the backs of slaves owned by the man that penned “all men are created equal”).  This really is a pretty legit spot where you can spend anywhere from an hour to a day. Also, James Madison’s digs is near by along with some other sweet historic sites if you want to get yourself some more ‘Merca!
