President's Day is a fitting remembrance of the unprecedented and prodigious leadership of our founding forefathers. To coincide with this hallowed remembrance, the state of Virginia has teamed up with Washington's Mount Vernon, Jefferson's Monticello, and Madison's Montpelier to commemorate and remember our democratic history and heritage by offering a unique opportunity to experience the domestic domiciles of some of our greatest Presidents ever.

The "Presidents Passport" program is supported by a marketing partnership between the state of Virginia, and the Charlottesville Albemarle Convention & Visitors Bureau (CACVB), the Alexandria Convention & Visitors Association (ACVA), and the three historical sites of Mount Vernon, Monticello and Montpelier. Their mission is to promote travel between each historic city and featured site. Learn more about discounts and details at PresPassport.Monticello.org.

Now recognized as a National Historic Landmark and a United Nations World Heritage Site, his home hosts over 450,000 visitors annually and is an architectural attribute to his renaissance genius.

About James Madison's Montpelier

Perhaps one of the most under-appreciated presidents of America, James Madison is directly attributed to the literary structure of our Constitution as well as the architect of the Bill of Rights. Fourth President of the United States and a genius in his own right, Madison was involved in almost every aspect of our country's beginnings. Visit Montpelier.org for more information.
