On day one, visit Montpelier, the home of President James Madison, the Father of the Constitution and Architect of the Bill of Rights, and Dolley Madison, America’s first "First Lady."  The Montpelier estate features the historic home and grounds, gardens, historic buildings, exhibitions and tours, archaeological sites, and 8+ miles of walking trails.  Check into your hotel in Charlottesville and enjoy an included dinner.  After breakfast, arrive at Monticello and tour the Thomas Jefferson Visitor Center and Smith Education Center to see a film and enjoy the exhibitions.  Tour Monticello, the mountaintop home of Thomas Jefferson and visit the spectacular Gardens and Mulberry Row.  Enjoy lunch and tour today at Michie Tavern, one of the oldest homesteads remaining in Virginia.  Here, hearty, typical colonial fare is served in the "Ordinary."  Later, visit Ash Lawn Highland, the home of Jefferson's good friend and fellow President James Monroe.  The 535 acre estate has the atmosphere of an early 19th century working plantation.  On the last day, visit the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library and Museum. Step back in time to 1856 and enjoy a self-guided tour of the museum and explore President Wilson's life through seven galleries.
