A Visit to Mount Vernon

Welcome to Mount Vernon. For a fee, you can bike there, tour the grounds and mansion, then enjoy a scenic cruise back to Old Town Alexandria.


For those who may be unfamiliar with Mount Vernon, this would be the home of George Washington. It is also the location where he passed away. He was more than just our first president, he was a farmer and an interior designer. He loved to be on the farm.

And that is how Tom and I spent last Sunday. A break from our modern life. A step back into time. A beautiful day. A delicious treat from The Creamery.

An enjoyable afternoon.
