  1. Average priced "Sights & Attractions" in Mount Vernon, Virginia, USA
    If you endeavor to witness Presidential homes, it seems inconceivable to leave Mount Vernon off the list. I will share the traffic and tourist crowds place this at the top of the list of most stressful presidential homes I have visited, but at the e…
  2. Average priced "Sights & Attractions" in Charlottesville, Virginia, USA
    Time marches on, but fortunately we look back over our shoulder every now and again to make sure we are on the right path. Up until 2016, you could tour the site known as Ash Lawn-Highland and be conducted through the presidential home of James Monr…

  3. Average priced "Sights & Attractions" in Montpelier Station, Virginia, USA
    The plantation home of James and Dolley Madison, this elegant facility offers insight into multiple periods of American history. Of course the focus is upon James Madison, fourth president of the United States. Perhaps the deepest thanks I owe Mont…
  4. Cheap "Sights & Attractions" in Mentor, Ohio, USA
    The inspiration for visiting Lawnfield, the presidential home of James Garfield, was his biography, “Destiny of the Republic”. Assassinated very shortly after taking office, there was scant legacy left behind to appreciate Garfield, but this rec…

  5. Expensive "Sights & Attractions" in Charlottesville, Virginia, USA
    A really brilliant site. I was aware Thomas Jefferson was the architect of Monticello and labored long and hard over the construction of his home, but I never appreciated the equal effort devoted to landscaping the grounds. You cannot help but be i…
  6. Average priced "Sights & Attractions" in Forest, Virginia, USA
    So who knew Thomas Jefferson’s had a plantation in addition to Monticello? I certainly did not, until quite recently, but a splendid discovery. Poplar Forest is a 4,800 acre plantation Thomas inherited from his father-in-law in 1773. Though pr…

  7. Average priced "Sights & Attractions" in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA
    James Buchanan seems to be in a spirited contest with Warren G. Harding for worst US President ever. I do not see much sense in entering that debate, but I will attest there is value touring Wheatland, Buchanan’s Presidential Home. Perhaps the ba…
  8. Very cheap "Sights & Attractions" in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA
    There are several cool things about visiting the Taft Historic Site. The most practical is that it is conveniently located in downtown Cincinnati and very easy to get to if you find yourself in this big city. Second is that it is maintained by the …
  9. Cheap "Sights & Attractions" in Georgetown, Ohio, USA
    The Grant boyhood home is recommended. Ulysses was the firstborn of Jesse and Hanna in 1823 and the tour of his home was surprisingly awesome. I opened the door and walked inside to a small room, hearing the conclusion of a current tour followed by…

So that’s seven many is it left to visit then?! Not another 38, surely (especially considering a few former POTUS are still with us...)
