Perhaps Thomas Jefferson’s own words best describe the panoramic vistas and rolling hills of Albemarle County. He wrote, “These mountains are the Eden of the United States.” The Eden where Mr. Jefferson was born, where he made his home and that inspired him to write those words, has changed somewhat with the times, but the historic streets of Charlottesville, the spectacular beauty of the Blue Ridge and the country lanes of Albemarle County remain. Today, history comes to life in Charlottesville and Albemarle County. Jefferson’s Monticello, Monroe’s Ash Lawn Highland, the old country homes, inns, mills and Charlottesville’s historic downtown district, offer visitors a unique view of one of Virginia’s most beautiful and historically significant locations. This eTrail provides detailed information on sights, events, entertainment, shopping, dining, accommodations, and transportation in this area of Virginia.
