Mount Vernon is a true place of rest. It is near Alexandria, Virginia, and was the home of the first President of the United States, George Washington. It was also at Mount Vernon where George Washington was buried along with his wife, Martha. I had the opportunity to spend a beautiful sunny day here, and take advantage of the gardens and the farm, without many queues to get to the president's house. The property is situated on the banks of the Potomac River, which gives it a somewhat 'wild' feel. I recommend you to make a visit to this place, as it is beautiful and a place of interest.
