A day spent at Mount Vernon is well worth the trip. After buying our tickets, we took the trail to the mansion. The map they give you is very helpful. You can choose the time of your tour so you can decide what to see and do first. Once you get in line to get into the house, it goes fast. Lots of great information from the guides inside the house. We also took the boat tour which was nice and relaxing and provides a completely different perspective of the land and the house. The Slave Memorial and Washington's tomb were very historic. We ate at the restaurant and the food was great and the portions big. Be sure to look inside all of the outbuildings to get the whole picture of what life was like in Washington's day.
