Take a convenient half-day trip from Washington DC to Mount Vernon, the home of President George Washington. Listen to your driver share historical facts and anecdotes about Washington's life on your way to Mount Vernon, and then explore the lovely and historic site on your own. See the stately mansion in which the first US president and his family lived, and walk around the expansive grounds on the shores of the Potomac River. You'll also drive through Old Town Alexandria and stop at Christ Church, where Washington worshipped.
