George Washington's Estate, known as Mount Vernon, is located in Mount Vernon, Virginia, along the Potomac River and is probably the most scenic attraction in the Washington DC area. Mount Vernon, the home of George and Martha Washington, is the most popular historic estate in America. Guests to Mount Vernon can visit the 21-room Mansion, more than a dozen original structures, Washington's Tomb, and nearly 50 acres of his extensive plantation. The estate also includes a working blacksmith shop and the Pioneer Farm site, a 4-acre demonstration farm with a reconstructed slave cabin and 16-sided treading barn.

You'll learn everything you want to know about George Washington's life in the Ford Orientation Center and Donald W. Reynolds Museum and Education Center featuring more than 500 original artifacts, 25 galleries, interactive exhibits and inspiring films. They have videos and other galleries with information about the life of the first American President. There is a food court and a fantastic gift shop.

After Mount Vernon, we'll take you to Arlington National Cemetery. Your guide will walk you through the Cemetery and show you its high points, including the Tomb of the Unknowns , the Changing of the Guard (if time allows), a view of Custis-Lee Mansion , and the Kennedy grave sites . You can learn more about Arlington National Cemetery here. Your tour guide will tell you about how the Cemetery started when one of Abraham Lincoln's generals started burying Union soldiers in Robert E. Lee's wife's flower garden.

Loved our guide. She was very knowledgable and quick to get us where we needed to be! It was so nice to just follow her lead. She should be a keeper for you guys and greatly compensated for her work! My husband and I do believe though that tips should be included in your price.
