Romance/Getaway Series - Monticello
Monticello is the autobiographical masterpiece of Thomas Jefferson—designed and redesigned and built and rebuilt for more than forty years—and its gardens were a botanic showpiece, a source of food, and an experimental laboratory of ornamental and useful plants from around the world.
We went on a very rainy and overcast day thinking that this would keep some of the people away, but we were so wrong. We got there around noon and they told us the next available tour of the home was at 4:45pm, so if you are planning to visit Monticello go EARLY! Aside from the long wait, we also had difficulty locating Monticello with poor signage and GPS does not find the location given. Other than these minor setbacks, the grounds are absolutely beautiful, and while you wait there is a gift shop, café, gallery, and a video on the history of Monticello and Jefferson himself to help pass the time. It’s a beautiful place to visit, and I think that it is definitely worth taking the trip.
