Dead President's Tour

Boar's Head Resort

About this event

The Boar's Head Resort

Charlottesville and the Piedmont Region are home to many Presidential estates such as Monticello, Montpelier, fantastic shopping, great restaurants, outstanding wineries, and some of the best roads in Virginia.  We are planning a diverse set of activities including historic tours, scenic drives, fine dining, and quaint towns.  


We will stay at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains for two nights at the Boars Head Resort - the only AAA Four Diamond resort in Charlottesville. Enjoy a warm and intimate ambiance with southern hospitality, a luxury spa, scenic hikes, outdoor pools, multiple restaurants, and bars.  The Boars Head Resort combines the classic with the contemporary, the refined with the casual, and the tranquil with the dynamic.

This popular pass includes access to our gardens, grounds, walking tours, family-friendly activities, and exhibits.
