Significant not for it's size or architecture but whose it was . . . George Washington. Gives you a new perspective on the man, his culture, life, and humbleness.

General Washington to President Washington, this home was his sanctuary. Walk the floors that he walked, enjoy the same view from his back porch that he did. A Place that can make anyone feel patriotic, even if they are not American.

I loved Mt. Vernon. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They gave lots of good information and you really learn a lot about George Washington, his family, and his home. Would definitely recommend. Also fairly easy to get there using public transit.

We have made several family trips to Mount Vernon and it's always been pleasant. The staff are very accommodating and we have even attended a military graduation that was celebrated here. I would advise going on a dry day since there are many dirt trails...More

After asking a previous question, I have since learned that I can take a connector bus from the Huntington Metro that will drop me off in front of the Mount Vernon Visitors Center. Does anyone know how often these buses run at what time their first and last stops are?

Thoughts on the educational add-on programs? We are taking fifth graders for a field trip, and want to do the "Farmer Washington" program. How interactive is it? SOME students involved? MOST students involved? ALL students?
