The Amateur Traveler talks again to Jason and Janie about their hometown of Charlottesville, Virginia.

Charlottesville has deep historic roots and the homes of Presidents Jefferson and Madison with the home of Monroe close by as well.

Charlottesville is also the home of the University of Virginia and Thomas Jefferson was more proud of founding the institution than of being president.

The area is now the home to numerous wineries and numerous restaurants and hosts a thriving food culture. Charlottesville is also a gateway to the Shenandoah Valley as well as other areas for hiking and outdoor activities.
