Virginia – Birthplace of our US Presidents

Today is President’s Day.  My blog is in honor of our nation’s Virginia born presidents.

George Washington would be 283 years old on Sunday February 22.  And did you know our first president was born in Virginia along with 7 other US Presidents: Thomas Jefferson (3rd US President), James Madison (4th US President), James Monroe (5th US President), William Henry Harrison (9th US President), John Tyler (10th US President), Zachary Taylor (12th US President), and Woodrow Wilson (28th US President)?

While staying at Steeles Tavern, reunite yourselves in our American History.

Enjoy a day trip to Charlottesville which is about 1 hour away to visit the homes of Thomas Jefferson (Monticello) and James Monroe (Ash Lawn Highland).  Michie Tavern is a great place to have lunch where you will enjoy a Southern buffet lunch.  Before leaving stop by Jefferson Vineyards. It is family owned winery located where Thomas Jefferson first began the American wine revolution.

The Natural Bridge, once owned by Thomas Jefferson, is a Natural Historic landmark that is located 30 miles south of us.  You can walk under the massive Bridge’s archway. Look for George Washington’s initials that are carved into the rocks under the bridge.

Spend an afternoon in Staunton (20 miles north of us) where President Woodrow Wilson was born.  Take a self-guided tour through the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library and Museum located in Staunton’s historic district.

Book a Reservation and take in the history of some of our great US Presidents.

See you soon!
