    Beautiful place to spend a few hours. I walked the grounds taking many photos but I decided to skip the mansion. When you enter, your ticket has a time to enter the mansion waiting line. My time was over 2 hours after I arrived. That line was super long and not something I wanted to do. I also tend to care less about furniture. I love Architecture and landscapes. Mount Vernon has plenty to explore from old Slave living quarters to the tomb of our first President. The gardens are my favorite and I highly recommend a visit.

    I really enjoyed my visit to Mount Vernon. The house is largely restored, and very interesting from a historical perspective. The grounds helped me imagine what life would have been like on a plantation. What a crazy contradiction that the man who is the father of our country also ran a plantation with slaves. There is a very good movie to watch that gives a sense of George Washington and his times, don’t miss that. Finally there are some beautiful views of the Potomac River from the house that are worth simply enjoying. Anyhow, Mount Vernon is a quick trip from DC, so don’t miss it.

    It is easy to forget that this historical gem is just up the road from us. After taking an out of town guest for a visit on the spur of the moment I was drawn back to the great field trips our grade school classes had taken here. It is still an impressive walk through history.

    Beautiful, historic, well taken care of. Can’t go wrong visiting the first president’s estate. I absolutely enjoy going to visit. President Washington’s home is full of so much to explore and observe. Everyone needs to put this place on their list of places to visit.

    How far this place has fallen since my youth! Went on washington’s birthday this year because of the events listed on their website under “today”. None of the events occurred, and when I questioned the staff, none seemed to know that it was his birthday (feb 22). We also enjoyed the broken theater, which announced that a film would start in 2 minutes. The doors kept opening and closing comically whenever the timer went down to zero, but the movie never began. Not sure anyone on the staff really cares.
