Surrounded by her family friends and merrily twinkling candles, Martha Washington welcomes visitors to her famed estate in a festive holiday tradition. During the tour, characters from the Washingtons' world guide guests through the first and second floors of the mansion. From 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., tour guests are welcome to stop into the Education Center to explore on their own.

George Washington's Mount Vernon

Its red roof shining from the banks of the Potomac River, historic Mount Vernon bears the torch of gentleman planter and inaugural commander in chief George Washington via the home where he lived for 40 years. It takes about three hours to explore the estate, a visit which begins with a walk through the grounds and a short film before proceeding to a guided tour of the mansion. There, time-travelers visit 1799—the year Washington died—as recreated by preserved original furnishings and detailed reproductions. The home's windows look out on 50 acres of plantation, with 12 original structures, gardens, and a forest trail hemmed with holly and laurel. The museum and education center weaves a rich audio-visual tapestry of the general's life, filled with 23 theaters and galleries and 700 original artifacts that include his famous dentures.
