It costs a bit to visit Hillwood, and tickets have to be reserved well in advance, but it's a great place to bring out of town visitors, or even to just visit during various seasons. The house itself is packed with Russian treasures from the time that Mrs. Merriweather-Post was wife to the US Ambassador to Russia. The gardens are also great - a must see in the spring, but also nice in other seasons. They also serve a nice lunch in their tea room, so it's a good outing.
