Fodor's Review

Originally owned by the Randolph family, Tuckahoe is 7 mi west of Richmond, on the James River. Thomas Jefferson spent his boyhood years, from 1745 until 1752, here. In fact, he began his studies in the one-room schoolhouse that still stands on the beautifully landscaped grounds, which are open daily for self-guided tours. Guided tours of the house are by appointment only, except during the special Christmas tour in December. A working farm, Tuckahoe still sells beef,

chickens, cut flowers, and organic eggs.
