A visit to the Nation’s Capital would not be complete without a visit to America's most popular historic home—Mount Vernon. Located 16 miles south of Washington, D.C., the treasured estate of George and Martha Washington, is one of our country's oldest ongoing preservation projects. Washington's elegant mansion has been restored to its appearance as it was in the last year of his life. The exhibition area contains more than 30 acres of beautiful gardens and wooded grounds just waiting to be explored. Close to the main house are the outbuildings where much of the day-to-day domestic activity of the plantation took place, from baking bread to the weaving of cloth from wool and flax fibers. A short walk brings you upon the tomb where George and Martha Washington are buried, along with other family members. Enjoy lunch on your own at the Mount Vernon Inn.
