Late November trip to Virginia

My son and I are taking a trip over Thanksgiving. We thought Virginia might be warm enough to enjoy and not too far away from Connecticut. He would like to go out at night, whereas I'm happy to sit with our dog and read a book at night, so a cottage would be nice. I'd like art museums, mountains, walking, restaurants, historical sites, etc.

Any suggestions for a destination that both of us would enjoy?

Going out at night implies a town to me, while a cottage implies being in a rural area, so I'm a little fuzzy about what you're looking for exactly. I would investigate Charlottesville, Lexington, Staunton, Warrenton, Roaonoke, Fredericksburg, or Culpeper as being areas that hit at least some of your interests.

Virginia will be getting pretty cold at the end of november especially in a place like Lexington which is in the mountains.

Maybe check airbnb.com for a "cottage" in the Richmond, VA area that has an active nightlife, restaurants, history, etc.
