15).  Monticello    Near Charlottesville, Virginia (July 2001)

As a rule, I try to avoid famous touristy places when I travel.  However, I'd never been to President Jefferson's home, Monticello.  I've always admired Thomas Jefferson so I swallowed my pride and paid my admission fee and I'm really glad I did.  I spent a few hours here admiring Jefferson's creativity and intellect, and I left thoroughly awed and humbled. Monticello is a must-see if you ever visit Virginia.
