Friday, November 3, 2017     $105.00 per person

 

On the Potomac banks, the 19-room mansion displays George and Martha's colonial tastes, while the outbuildings and slave quarters show what was needed for the functioning of the estate. George and Martha are both buried here, as requested by the first president in his will.  Explore the manicured grounds and the beautifully restored interior of the President’s mansion and get a glimpse of his daily work and life in his study and private rooms. Learn the stories behind the remarkable estate at the Orientation Center.  The modern Ford Orientation Center is a must-see on the grounds. It features a 20-minute film that shows Washington's courage under fire, including his pivotal crossing of the Delaware River. Another highlight is the sleek Reynolds Museum and Education Center, home to galleries and theaters, which provide more insight into Washington's life. Lunch included at the Mount Vernon Inn.
