Luray / Monticello / Liberty Univ.

I would like to create an outing where we take our teenage daughter to see Liberty University, but since we will be driving from NJ to VA's western region.....it sure would be great to see Luray Caverns and then maybe Thomas Jefferson's Monticello.

Geographically speaking.....if you were me.....coming into VA from DC's outer loop / beltway/ 495...over three days, what should be first, second , and last?

Luray...then Liberty U...then Monticello....then head north back to NJ???????

By the way....We'll do a Thurs., Fri. and Sat. trip.

Thanks!

Steve

Steve...

Try bookings & put in your dates, I do not use them for actual bookings, I call the accommodation directly.

You guys were correct.

Most of the good chains were already booked for Friday night.

Actually Country Inn and Suites had a room open for Friday night but it was priced at $235 plus fees and tax

So....

I booked for Thurs. night Nov. 9th only:

Country Inn and Suites

1600 Emmet Street North

Charlottesville VA 22901

..............................................AAA Rate for Thurs. Nov. 9th $121.50 plus tax and fees

Advice needed now

Friday morning we check out.....go see Liberty University

.....on Saturday I want to take my family to Monticello and then continue on to home (New Jersey)

Where would be a place to stay Friday night that is not affected by crowds coming in for College/University sports?

Someplace with a well reviewed chain hotel that does not exceed $180 a night???
