The city also has several historical attractions nearby, such as Thomas Jefferson’s house Monticello and George Washington’s house Mount Vernon, which are both located in Virginia.

St. Louis

This Midwestern city made the cut due to its Gateway Arch, which commemorates America’s westward expansion and pays homage to Thomas Jefferson’s role in encouraging people to venture into the West following the Louisiana Purchase, according to the National Park Service.
