Day 1

Mount Vernon is the most popular historic estate in America and a lasting reminder of the life and legacy of the “Father of Our Country.” Your journey into our nation’s history begins with a 40-minute sightseeing cruise on the Potomac River along the estate’s waterfront. Washington’s farming and fishing business required a wharf to transport goods by boat to Alexandria. Our cruise will depart from that very wharf and you will learn about Washington the businessman. Once back on land, you will have a 2-course lunch of delicious regional and colonial cuisine served by costumed wait staff included at the charming Mount Vernon Inn. After lunch, you will take a tour of Washington's home acquired by George and Mary in 1754. Over the next 45 years, Washington expanded the home to reflect his status as a Virginia gentleman personally overseeing every detail of design, construction, and decoration, impressively enough even while away at war. Afterwards, you will have free time to stroll through the remainder of the estate at your leisure. Visit the tomb that houses the remains of George, Mary, and other family members. See the Slave Memorial and Burial Ground. Although any original grave markers have disappeared over the years, there is a memorial to honor the slaves who lived and worked at Mount Vernon. The elaborate gardens possess a stunning array of vibrant colors and spectacular fragrances that fill the air. Before departing, you may wish to stop at the Ford Orientation Center and Donald W. Reynolds Museum and Education Center both offering a comprehensive and memorable experience that span Washington’s lifetime. A fast-food rest stop will be made en route home.
