George Washington's Estate Mount Vernon - Review
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.
If you are an American history buff then George Washington’s Estate is one attraction that you should not miss out on. Being a popular attraction, expect long queues when you go to buy tickets for George Washington’s Estate on the spot.

George Washington's Estate Mount Vernon, Washington D. C. Reviews
George Washington’s - Mount Vernon, is a must see while traveling in the DC area. The grounds are immaculate and have been restored beautifully to match what they have found to be historically correct. I found the property clean and well maintained and would wear walking shoes and plan to spend 2-3 hours at this location. If you are wheelchair bound you will need assistance going up and down the hills as there is a lot of gravel that makes navigating it difficult on your own. If you are traveling with young children you might want to skip the feature film they share in the welcome center it’s well done but they share some gruesome death scenes and it is about 25 minutes long. The film is great if you know little to nothing about the history of George Washington I would spend the time to watch it. You need to plan to go early in the day if you want to have a shot at touring the main house - it’s a long wait and you need time tickets to enter. There is an upper and lower garden with houses that line each side from slave quarters to horses stables. The tomb site is worth seeing it’s a bit of a walk but be sure to stop and pay respects. There is a store, place to eat and restrooms on the facility.
Fantastic. The grounds and house are about Washington the farmer rather than General Washington or President Washington. Those are covered in the museum and the many folks. Very well done. Take the little cruise on the Potomac for a view of the house from the river and to cool off. The 16- sides grit Mill barn is unique. We saw a sheep being hard sheared, which was a treat (happens in may only). Just an amazing place.
I cherish this place. The tours are interesting, the speakers and presentations are interesting and give topical points of view you'd never consider other than the opportunity to hear these presentations. Highly recommend presentation on wardrobe. It is very entertaining and covers history of a number of topics of interest to both men and women. Events are held here regularly. Even the food in the restaurant has improved over the years.
A great sight!!! This is more than just George Washington's home. It's the farm land and plantation and surrounding grounds. This area is expansive and takes a great while to walk around and see all of the details. There are great reenactments and guides in historic dress. Allow enough time to walk through and see all the sights. It could definitely take all day. A wonderful experience!
Mount Vernon is a beautiful Manor estate that offers a great look into both the engineering and architectural genius of Washington's mind as well as his agricultural innovation. The walk around the estate is easy and is worth looking at the gardens, different functional buildings of the estate and just to enjoy the view. Great for family trips and anyone interested in history and George Washington. The on estate museum is really informative and intrigues anyone from a casual to devoted history buff. I am definitely going back
