“ No history buff’s trip to D.C. is complete without a visit to George Washington’s Mount Vernon. Home to our first president and his wife Martha, this expansive eighteenth-century estate is remarkable preserved. On what is still an impressive amount of land, you’ll find their stylishly appointed home, lovely gardens and grounds, and several historic outbuildings like a distillery and gristmill. It’s all been carefully preserved, and in some cases extensively restored, and it remains a fascinating look into the way wealthy Americans lived in the period. While this attraction is comprised of a few distinct buildings and does require some outside time, you’ll be able to spend the bulk of your experience in these lovely historic venues to avoid the rain.”
