A Day at Mount Vernon

The day we checked out from our hotel in DC after touring the Capitol building, we drove 16 miles to the Washington's farm in Mount Vernon. A visit to Mount Vernon includes a tour of the farm as it would have been in Washington's time and their home. Also on the property is Washington's tomb among several others. There are also several museums and an educational center that were very cool. The Donald W. Reynolds Education Center was by far the most interesting part of the day (except for seeing the house).

Freakishly real looking life-size wax figures/models of George Washington at Valley Forge and the first ever inauguration.
