Travel: George Washington’s Mount Vernon in Mount Vernon, Virginia

George & Martha Washington's home
For more information on Mount Vernon, click here

A National Historic Landmark, Mount Vernon is President George and Martha Washington’s plantation home. Though the property belonged to the family from 1674, construction of the Palladian-style home began in 1758, and guests are able to walk through this magnificent place.

The estate is open year-round and for an entrance fee, visitors are able to tour the mansion, grounds and museum. Even if you’re not a history buff, visiting Mount Vernon is an educational delight!
