Mt. Vernon Estate, Museums and Gardens (The Visit)

George Washington's Home Tour

May 21, 2010 - Alexandria, VA

If you are visiting the estate for the first time, and you're driving by car with GPS, the address might not show properly on it, making it confusing to follow the directions.
There is a google map linking to the exact address of Mt. Vernon, located on the general information menu on their website. Just google it and you'll be taken up there.

Since we were coming from Washington D.C., it was supposed to be a 30-minute drive going to the place, but gosh!...we were caught up in a traffic jam and so we reached the area after an hour and 30 minutes drive..Whew!

The only thing we were able to do was to visit the mansion which was the last batch of tour at 4PM. Well, better yet than nothing!

it's always good to be there early so you can see and enjoy things including visits to Washington's tom, the gardens, and many more activities.
