Amazing and cool

The scenic view from the back of the mansion is just wonderful. Being able to see how people were living back in a days when GW was in charge is just amazing. Due to Covid19 we were not allowed to go pass the Mansion first floor for the tour. Nevertheless, the time spent there overall was greatly appreciate. Educationally worthed!

There is no such thing as skip the line at Mount Vernon. The tickets were deceptive. We had to stand in line a half hour to get in to see Mt Vernon.

There were so many people that it was hard to get the information that each person in the house was trying to convey. However, we enjoyed our visit.

Wonderful. Clean, will staffed, staff friendly and helpful. Rest rooms were clean and available. Museum was wonderful. The best part is a foundation keeps the place going and not the government. Yeah! Also, for those on the road, they do provide a place to put your valuables.

Perfect time of year for our visit to DC. Crowds are minimal and weather was perfect. Be sure to leave extra time if you are driving for traffic in DC and parking at Mount Vernon site. We specially enjoyed the inside home tour with costumed docents. there is significant waking to see most of the plantation...wear comfortable shoes and lite jackets , if windy.
