Had no idea what to expect. We did a 3-day visit to Montpelier, Monticello, and Highlands. While the most modest of the three sites, Highlands was the most intimate, least busy, and very informative about our 5th president and author of the Monroe Doctrine, a landmark in American foreign policy.

The house is gone! Burned down ages ago; they have unearthed part of the foundation, but no house :( With all the presidential homes in Virgina, I wouldn't waste your time on this one! On a positive note, the guide was amazing and James Monroe was a fascinating person -- but this whole ad is very misleading. THERE IS NO HOUSE :(

Groupon clearly shows regular price ticket as $19 which was the same price listed at register, which included the tour and augment reality. The employee insisted that the augmented reality wasn’t included with the groupon. 😡 Not very happy. There wasn’t an option for the house tour only. Just $19 for both or just the self guided augmented reality for $13.

I was excited to finally get here! While not a Mt. Vernon nor a Monticello, our guide was so informative and the grounds so beautiful, you soon appreciate Highland as it is. It is not to be missed, especially if you love history.

We had Martin as our tour guide. He is a master story teller and so enthusiastic about the property. I did not enjoy the virtual tour. I was disappointed that it was mostly cartoonish.

The grounds were beautiful! We enjoyed the video overview in the visitor center. The highlight was the tour itself. Our guide was so informative and we learned a lot about the Monroes, their way of life and the role they played in our history! We would recommend this tour and visit.

From Our Editors

Highland is the historical home of James Monroe, a Founding Father and the fifth president of the United States, who is best known for the Louisiana Purchase and the Monroe Doctrine. The early 19th-century home includes classical French furnishings, a Victorian wing, and a copy of Washington Crossing the Delaware, which features Monroe as a young Continental Army lieutenant.
