Visiting the home of George washington has been a thing we wanted to do for ages and this year we finally got around to going there.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:a lovely home and beautiful garden, a piece of history
  • Cons:was very busy and you do not get much time to look around the house.

    I've lived in VA for 9 years now and have yet to go. A renovation was just completed last year so I definitely must go!

    Now I want to visit it :-) Thanks for sharing! Update: haha, I visited it in October 2004 and I liked it a lot for many reasons: history, lovely location (hill, views, forest, Potomac River), beautiful gardens etc.

    Wasn't Mt Vernon a lot smaller in person than you'd imagined? But it's a neat old home and full of great history, glad you got there for yourself...
