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”.

George Washington's Estate Mount Vernon, Washington D. C. Reviews - Write a Review
The most memorable experience I have ever had. I definitely will come back to learn more about our 1st president. Beautiful surroundings, informative and well worth the visit. Reading our history books in school does not do this justice. A MUST SEE for all.
This has been so we'll preserved and it's maintained in a classy, authentic manner. The grounds are beautiful, the history is fascinating, the food is delicious, and it's a wonderful little educational escape from the city. I would recommend eating at the restaurant as everything is grown right there on the grounds and it's also flavorful! The staff we're so friendly and kind. We had a wonderful visit!
Super cool piece of history. The people there were very nice and were incredibly knowledgeable of the entire property. The speakers were exceptionally fun to listen to. I would eat before though and sneak my own water. That place charges 3.00 for water and none of the fountains work. Plus the food court was out of control pricey as well.
It was a truly wonderful experience. Reasonable prices for entry. We went during a special event weekend the colonial market and fair. It was a great visit, very educational. We enjoyed just walking the grounds at our own leasuire. Be sure an pay attention, you can walk in and look into most buildings on the grounds. If we come back we will definitely make time for a full day, to explore all the attractions. The standard tour was very enjoyable. Be sure and wear comfortable shoes. Also, the grounds are dog friendly, except for the mansion and museum.
There is so much to do here. I've been to DC many times but usually did not have a car or was not wanting to spend money so I've never been here before. Let me tell you, you will not regret going here. You can easily spend all day here. My wife and I got there at 1pm and left when the museum closed at 6pm rushed through it and we didn't even see the gristmill or distillery! We could have easily spent 8 hours here. When you get in make sure to look at the calendar for the day so you can plan when to be where. If you want to see the weaving for example, it's a walk from the mansion so make sure you're in that area when it starts. Do not miss out on the museum either. There are multiple movies and tons of good information there. In the museum alone expect to spend almost 2 hours. If you've been to Monticello this place is much bigger, highly highly recommend this as something to do outside of the normal National Mall activities in DC.
