MOUNT VERNON ESTATE
Travel through historic Old Town Alexandria enroute to Mt. Vernon where you will enjoy the plantation home of George Washington, the father of our country. Time is allowed for a tour of “The Mansion” and to admire all the original objects dating back to the 1740’s; the Colonial Revival Gardens, the new museums and education centers.
Tour Mount Vernon at your own speed on a self-guided walk through the house and grounds where George Washington planned the growth of a nation.
Visit working plantation outbuildings where re-enactors keep colonial ways alive and stroll through Martha Washington’s beautiful gardens. Also discover one of the best gift shops in the capital region – full of unique treasures, toys, cookbooks, history books and Virginian wines.
