Virginia - What order to see things in a 7 day October trip?

Jump to last reply

We're two California couples coming to Washington DC (four nights) and Virginia (8 nights). We've already booked the Tabard Inn in Washington and will have three full days there. We fly into Dulles and out of Richmond, Virginia.

VIRGINIA: We have 7 full days to see things in Virginia. We're interested in hiking, historic sights such as the presidential houses, colonial towns, other historic houses and gardens and other things we can't see at home. I also love historic cemeteries.

The four of us have come up with a preliminary list of what we would like to see. For those of you that know Virginia, can you make suggestions about how best to see the following? We're not sure about which order to see things and how to build a trip so that we're not staying only one night in many different places (driving times look short between many of these places). We can't easily tell if this list is way too long for the 7 days we have.

Alexandria
Mount Vernon
Great Falls
Charlottesville
Monticello
Montpelier
Monroe home (Ash Lawn?)
Shenandoah NP (stay in the lodge and have a good day hike?)
Williamsburg, Jamestown, Yorktown (time for all three?)
Richmond

These are some of the obvious things we found so far. Have we missed something that we could do around these other sights? Appreciate any suggestions, and thanks.
