"No estate in United America is more pleasantly situated than this." - George Washington
We had a perfect day to visit Mt. Vernon last week. I had wanted to take the kids several months ago as we learned about Washington in our history studies, but it was covered in snow. I think this time of year was much better. And my parents were able to come with us.

We spent a lot of time playing in Washington's front yard.

the Pioneer Farm site : A working farm, treading barn, animals.
We all enjoyed the day so much, I payed the extra few dollars per ticket to upgrade to an annual pass. I'm sure it is beautiful in the fall, and at Christmas when the mansion is decorated.
There are so many places in this area... so little time....
