This weekend, Mt Vernon hosts their annual Fall Harvest Family Day Festival and if you haven't visited the estate yet, this is the perfect opportunity to tour the plantation of our first president. We went last year and all the kids loved it - free roasted apples, wagon rides (though the lines can get long), a hay bale maze, lots of charactor actors, and (of course) all the gorgeous fall foliage in the background. Plus, Potomac River site-seeing is offering half-priced cruises from George's dock.
All activities are included in regular admission price: adults, $15.00; children ages 6-11, $7.00; and children under 5 are admitted free. (And don't forget, season passes only cost $25 for adults and $10 for kids, a really great deal).
Whatever you do this weekend, have a great time - see you next week!
