Planning a summer escape to DC? Your to-do list is probably quite long. After-all, there’s a lot to do and see this season in Washington DC! You’ve undoubtedly got all the big ones covered: The National Mall, The Capitol, The Smithsonian, and of course touring the home of our nation’s president. But don’t forget about the area’s more hidden gems, like George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate. This summer, Mount Vernon is giving you the chance to tour without the crowds. Take a glimpse at all they’re hosting:
Enjoy a cocktail buffet and private tours of the mansion at this reception to support the Project Archivist position. The proceeds from this charity event will go towards helping “preserve the history of the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association.”
Appropriately so, Mount Vernon Estate is hosting an all-day 4th of July event. Enjoy military reenactments, fireworks over the Potomac, birthday cake, and a “Red, White, and Blue” concert to celebrate the independence of our country!
