  by the water
by iaint

George Washington's home. Its a big farm/estate so couldn't do everything in it justice here. Buy a good guidebook and read up before you go.
His tomb is there as well.
Its child friendly and much is outdoors.
Definitely recommended, and a great break from the downtown sightseeing.

Address: Virginia, in countryside
Directions: Beltway (I495) south of city to G Washington Parkway. Should be signed from there.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
