Mount Vernon , VA
Located just 16 miles south of DC at the end of the George Washington Memorial Parkway. Mount Vernon, the most popular historic estate in America, now features 25 new theaters and galleries in an underground museum and education center that illuminates George Washington's remarkable life. A tour of the 45-acre historic estate includes the Mansion house as it appeared in 1799, more than a dozen outbuildings, four distinct gardens, a Forest Trail, and a four-acre exhibition farm. George and Martha Washington rest in peace in the tomb, and Mount Vernon's slaves are honored at the nearby Slave Memorial and Burial Ground.
