We were pleasantly surprised by The Hermitage. I have never been interested in history, but this visit was educational and intriguing. The grounds are beautiful and you can go at your own pace.

Get the audio guide for sure, as some of the grounds have interesting facts or stories you might not find on the signs. Also, be sure to make time for the exhibits before entering the house to get a sense of Jackson's life before retirement.

They sell beverages at several locations so no need to pack your own. The length of the walk is up to you. For just the house and gardens probably less than 1 1/4 miles. Is tour all of the hounds maybe 3 miles?
