After an unnerving wake up call-- yep, the fire alarm went off minutes before my phone alarm was to go off. Talk about a rude awakening and an adrenaline rush to start off your day, and a yummy breakfast of apple cinnamon waffles (yes, I recommend the hotel despite the wake up call), we were off to Charlottesville to see Monticello, Michie Tavern, and Ash Lawn-Highland.
It was interesting to do the tours again for Montpelier and Monticello and have different guides. You get a slightly different perspective. I wouldn't be opposed to going again.
And we discovered last time we were at here (and roasting from the heat) the Monticello Root Beer. We had to get it again. It was that memorable and quite tasty. And Elijah and Sam were more than willing to model it.
