When I went to Mount Vernon, I didn't get a chance to see the inside of the house because of the line being so long and it getting late. I did get to take a tour of Mount Vernon from the Potomac River and it was a very nice tour that is worth taking. It goes from the area you pick the boat up at, and it goes up to Fort Washington and back to where you picked the boat up. So if you go to Mount Vernon I recommend paying the extra money for the river tour if it is being offered.

Here is the new tomb where George and Martha Washington are buried

Here is the old tomb. This is where the Washington family was buried before they were moved to the new tomb
