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, and since I've always admired Jefferson, 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.
