The estate, gardens, and farm of Mount Vernon totaled some 8,000 acres in the 18th century.
Presently, an estimated 500 acres of this historic property have been painstakingly preserved along the
banks of the Potomac River. Guests visiting the estate can view Washington’s Mansion and many other
original structures. The historic footprint also includes the tomb of George and Martha Washington
and a memorial dedicated to the enslaved people who lived and worked on the estate. Interpretive
spaces such as the Pioneer Farm and George Washington’s Gristmill & Distillery provide a rich
understanding of Washington’s enterprising and profitable business ventures.

Monticello

Monticello was the primary plantation of Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States,
who began designing and building Monticello at age 26 after inheriting land from his father. Feel the
power of place at Monticello. Learn about Thomas Jefferson, the ideas of freedom, and the realities of
slavery that made the United States.

Michie Tavern

Historic Michie Tavern served as the social center of its community and accommodated travelers with
food, drink and lodging. It remained in operation, in the Michie family, until 1910, when it came to be
owned by the Commonwealth of Virginia. In 1927, the Tavern was purchased by Josephine Henderson,
who had it moved seventeen miles from Earlysville to its present location, close to Monticello. This
Virginia Landmark captures 18th -century life.

Highland

Highland, was the official residence of fifth President James Monroe and his wife, Elizabeth Kortright
Monroe, from 1799 to 1823. Purchased in 1793, Monroe and his family permanently settled on the
property in 1799 and lived at Highland for twenty-four years. Personal debt forced Monroe to sell the
plantation in 1825. Before and after selling Highland, Monroe spent much of his time living at Oak Hill.
President Monroe simply called his home “Highland.” It did not acquire the additional name of “Ash
Lawn” until after his death. The estate is now owned, operated and maintained by Monroe’s alma
mater, the College of William and Mary.

Charlottesville Historic Downtown Mall

The Historic Downtown Mall is celebrated as one of the most vibrant urban centers in small-town
America. Stretching along 8 tree-lined blocks, the brick-paved, pedestrian-only mall has been called
the “Community Living Room.” It is home to more than 120 shops and 30 restaurants. Add in half-adozen
art galleries, two historic theaters, multiple venues for live music, a movie theater, an ice skating
rink—plus free concerts, “Art Walks,” and a Saturday farmer’s market, and, you get a diverse and
entertaining place. Remarkably, in an age of chain stores, almost all businesses on the Historic
Downtown Mall are locally owned.

Montpelier

Tour the home of President James Madison, the Father of the Constitution and Architect of the Bill of
Rights, and Dolley Madison, America’s first “First Lady.” The Montpelier estate features the historic
home and grounds, gardens, historic buildings, exhibitions and archaeological sites.

White Water Walk

Take a walk like no other, along a boardwalk at the very edge of one of the world’s wildest stretches of whitewater! Marvel at the relentless power and beauty of nature, and see how the deep and narrow Great Gorge was created. Trillions of gallons of water are forced into this accelerating trough–the sight will take your breath away!

Whirlpool Aero Car

Soar the Great Gorge, high above the racing Niagara River. You’ll be transported through the air in an antique cable car, while far below the torrent of water abruptly changes direction and creates one of the world’s most mesmerizing natural phenomena – the Niagara Whirlpool, sometimes frightening and always unforgettable!

Butterfly Conservatory

Located on the grounds of the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens, visitors to the Butterfly Conservatory are transported to a tropical paradise full of lush vegetation, trickling waterfalls and thousands of vibrantly colored butterflies. Over 2,000 butterflies, made up of 45 different species, call this beautiful space home. The self-guided walking tour of the Butterfly Conservatory begins with a short, informative video presentation.

Floral Clock

The intricate designs on the face of the Floral Clock are created with up to 16,000 carpet bedding plants and are changed twice each year. The planted face of the Floral Clock is maintained by the Niagara Parks horticulture staff, while the mechanism inside is kept in working order by Ontario Hydro. The tower at the back of the clock houses Westminster chimes that greet each quarter hour.

Skylon Tower

The Skylon Tower is Niagara Falls most famous restaurant. The restaurant offers fine dining 775 feet above the Falls! You can see the Canadian Horseshoe Falls, The American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls all from the restaurants and observation deck. Visibility from Observatory on a clear day is 80 miles.

Journey Behind the Falls

To stand at the heart of Niagara, you’ll first need to descend 150 feet and explore 130-year-old tunnels through the bedrock, but you’ll feel the thunderous vibration of the Horseshoe Falls long before you see them. The observation deck at the foot of this 13-story-tall wonder will leave you breathless (and maybe a little bit wet), but don’t forget the viewing portals cut straight through the rock, offering a once-in-a-lifetime view of one-fifth of the world’s fresh water crashing down in front of you.

Hornblower Niagara Boat Ride

You may have seen the Falls before but you’ve never seen them quite like this. Hold onto your heart and keep your eyes wide open because you’re in for the thrill of a lifetime! The legendary Niagara Falls boat tour takes you as close as possible to the thundering roar, awesome power and amazing mist of the mighty Falls!
