Mount Vernon, just outside Washington, D.C., was the home of George Washington, the first U.S. president, and his wife Martha Washington.
Mount Vernon is located in Northern Virginia a few miles south of Alexandria, Virginia, and a short drive from Washington, D.C.
I recommend planning to spend half a day or more if you want to make the most out of your visit.
First, you need to review your ticket options and decide which is best for you. I strongly recommend that you purchase your tickets in advance.
