Pay online the day before your visit and get $3 off your ticket. The gardens are beautiful and it is worth spending the day and enjoying all of the scenery.

My daughter and I took her 3 boys on the family tour. It was geared towards the kids with special props and fun facts for them. So informative yet entertaining. So glad we went and I highly recommend.

House tour and garden tour were really well done. Everyone was friendly and the facility was clean. I recommend that you buy and read the National Geographic Monticello tour book and Americas First Daughter - makes it all come alive!!
