Be ready to do a lot of walking, this is 3000 acres. You can’t walk the whole thing but it does have paved or gravel walk ways. There are some hills and it is handicap accessible. The mansion does have stairs and no handicap access...More

Alllow the entire day to drive, park, walk and see all the exhibits at this wonderful place. Lots of beautiful trees and well manicured grounds. Arrive early as the crowds get bad later in the day.

It has been several years since I last visited Mount Vernon. The new museum is excellent - great exhibits. Also a large exhibit section devoted to the enslaved persons that worked at the estate. The colonial farm also was fun and educational.

We went on a weekday in the summer. I’d guess that’s better than a weekend. It was busy but not overcrowded.

No dress code that I saw. I would imagine that shoes and shirts are required.
