I go to the University of Virginia, and I can tell you that Charlottesville makes a good stop along that route.  Check out the Presidential museums at Monticello (Jefferson) and Ash Lawn-Highland (Monroe).  The University of Virginia campus (Go Cavs!) has a lot of historic buildings and cool museums and makes for a nice stroll, as do the shops and restaurants in the adjacent college town.

Appomattox Court House National Historical Park (where Lee surrendered to Grant) is a nice drive from Charlottesville.

Shenandoah National Park has beautiful scenery and great hiking.

Washington, DC is also a great place to spend a few days.  Some kid/teen friendly sites are the Smithsonian museums: National Air and Space Museum at Dulles Airport, Museum of Natural History and National Museum of American History in downtown DC.  If it's still baseball season, Nationals Park is one of the better ballparks to see a game.  If you're into football (and not that silly version of rugby played in metal helmets) then catch a DC United game at RFK StadiumFord's Theatre is a cool museum.  If you want to visit The White House, then you can book a tour online - I don't think they take walk-ups anymore.  A dog or 2 at Ben's Chili Bowl is a must, and if you're into exotic culinary adventures, then DC is known for its Ethiopian food (Dukem is my go-to Ethiopian spot).
