This is one of my favorite historic landmarks in Virginia. The guides there really help you envision what it was like when George Washington lived there. Being there in the fall is a real treat.

The gardens and grounds are beautiful, as is the house. I went for a school field trip in 8th grade to Washington D.C. and we took a day trip to Mt. Vernon. I remember being so amazed at the beauty of this place. I recommend planning on being there 2-3 hours and if you can go early in the day to avoid massive tour groups it'll be much more enjoyable.

I've been here several times and enjoy it with every visit. Very cool history, gorgeous views and fun. It can be VERY hot in the summer, so I suggest a spring of fall visit.

Not too far of a drive from DC. You can check out the historically accurate Washington Home exactly like it was when George lived there over 200 years ago. The grounds are beautiful and the tour I took brought you across most of the grounds. It took about 2.5 hours but I believe there are shorter tours if you're pressed for time.
