Many GPS users traveling from the Washington, DC area will be directed through Fredericksburg and on several winding back roads, including our local Milton Road (Rt. 729/732). Though this is an historic and scenic route, I frequently encourage visitors to use the direction listed above. In addition, searching for directions to Monticello, VA will direct visitors to Lake Monticello, which is many miles to the south east.

This page has helpful advice about how to get to Monticello. Perhaps the most important item on this page is the physical address GPS-users must enter to find Monticello. I shared an office for a while with the person answering Monticello's main telephone line, and the address needed for GPS was a frequently asked question alright.
