Mount Vernon Christmas illumination

Hi everyone

We are staying in DC mid December and have just noticed our stay coincides with Mount Vernon Christmas illuminations. We are DH, DS8 and DD5 and had considered a trip there anyway but wondered if it was worth it to make the evening effort instead?

Also, if we were to do this what’s the best transport for us - car hire or could we use public transport there in the afternoon and perhaps Uber back?

Appreciate any advice

Thanks

Marika

Marika,

We visited years ago (we drove) & absolutely loved it.

This page provides information on public transportation options to Mount Vernon:

mountvernon.org/plan-your-visit/…

Whether you want to go the route of renting a car just for the day (because you really don't need one when you're in DC) is up to you. I think you're idea of taking public transportation there and Uber back splits the difference nicely.

Agree with Carol, If the Option was a one day rental, go with Public Transport & Uber or Lyft.
