3200 Mount Vernon Memorial Highway
George Washington’s estate knows how to celebrate the holiday season like few other locales in the DMV area. During daylight hours, tour the gorgeous mansion, have holiday coffee and dessert with Martha Washington, witness chocolate-making demonstrations and hang out with the estate’s favorite pet, Aladdin the Camel. At nighttime, tour the estate by candlelight and on Dec. 15 and 16, enjoy an incredible fireworks display along the Potomac River. Mount Vernon stays open every day of the year.
