About George Washington's Estate Mount Vernon, Washington D. C.

The Mount Vernon estate which belonged to the American President George Washington has now become a popular tourist attraction. There are a lot of activities to do as well as places to see here in the sprawling area.

George has been buried here and you can see his house. It is also possible to see the house he lived in which was called “The Mansion”. There are also several smaller old school buildings all over the area. Even though the area was huge Washington had kept to the rustic lifestyle of having farm animals and stables which still exist. More importantly, the place has embraced the modern way of open thought and a memorial for the slaves who worked and died at the place has also been built.

There are also a bunch of options to eat authentic American food as well as other cuisines at this place. You also have the option of taking a candlelit tour through the estate. Since it sits by the Potomac river, the lovely water source can be seen through a ride in a small cruise ship. There is a lot to do so do plan a whole day around it.

  • I was not expecting to have a wonderful of a time as I did. Thought I'd stay for a few hours, ended up staying the whole day. Absolutely wonderful experience! After you've seen the house, take the time to walk around the grounds; the recreated farmland, the forest trail, and the gardens are all breathtaking. Loved the museum inside main building. The gift shop is more tasteful than is usual with historical locations (looking at you, Gettysburg). The food court didn't have much to offer by way of, well, anything that wasn't typical lame fast food, so that was a little disappointing, but they do offer outdoor seating so that was nice. This place is a national treasure. Bring the whole family!

  • Great place to get a history lesson about our first president. I recommend the tour the have a specialist for each room and they really know what they are talking about. You can see where he is buried here and just walk around. There is also a nice museum there which is also very informative. It makes a great day trip and there is a food court here so you can eat and spend the second half of the day here too. I would really recommend it to people who want an interesting fun filled day.

  • One of those iconic places you have to visit when in Washington. Beautifully restored and maintained. Interesting tour guide. Good that the displays are balanced and factual, dealing with the issue of slavery and the wider context of Washington's ambitions as a successful farmer/businessman. I guess an oversized gift shop and slightly over orchestrated feel are only to be expected in such a busy tourist attraction.

  • Great place to go if you want to really understand the history of our country. They do a really good job now with both the 4d theatres and addressing the role of slaves in the Colonies. Don't skip the little movies, they're good. Be prepared to walk, bring the right shoes and clothes for cold or hot weather. I recommend that you pair this with a capitol tour, there are parts that connect.

  • Went on a very chilly day after a snowfall and it was still very beautiful. What we couldn't enjoy walking around the estate due to the cold weather was more than made up for by the beautiful indoor festive displays. They had a chocolate making demonstration as well as samples of delicious hot chocolate! It was like stepping back in time! The Education center was very interesting and informative that gave some insight to human enslavement in that era, though it remains a difficult concept to grasp, living in this era.
