Do not miss the opportunity to see Washington’s estate if ever in the area. It’s a short $40 can ride from downtown DC. I would recommend one of their private tours so you can experience the real deal. Beautifully preserved

Tickets for military are $14 with ID. Seniors get $1 off. The lines are always very long, but you can go to the food court and gift shop without a ticket. Free parking.
