The Trail to Monticello

Look at the backside of a nickel. That building is called Monticello - the home of Thomas Jefferson (the man on the frontside of a nickel). 
While in Charlottesville, VA back in March, Kameron, my brother Chad, and I walked the Saunders-Monticello Trail. The trail leads to the Monticello Visitor Center, and you pay $25 to get a ticket to see Jefferson's home. Being the cheapskates we are, we did not go see Monticello itself, but thoroughly enjoyed a day outside in beautiful Virginia. 
This type trail is not our preferred hiking trail. We like a subtle train through the woods. The Saunders-Monticello trail was paved and built-up with railings and bridges. Nonetheless, it was beautiful, and we recommend it to anyone in the area. 
Have you ever visited Monticello? What is your favorite historical site?
