George Washington's home and estate are perfectly situated on the Potomac River, with sweeping views, well-tended grounds and buildings galore. The visitor center is well organized and the staff are very helpful. As you walk up to the main house, you're taken by the vast...More

The tour guide is the reason for 5 stars. The renovations took a lot away from the experience, but the tour inside made up for that. It has been years since I have been here. I'm really impressed with all that has been added.
