Full description
George Washington is a monumental figure in American history. With an in-depth look at his home in Virginia, we'll chart his course from humble beginnings as the son of a tobacco farmer to his eventual role as leader of the revolution against Britain. The tour starts with a visit to Old Town Alexandria, George Washington's adopted home. Dating back to the early 1700s, you'll learn of the many historical facts Old Town Alexandria played in American history. From there, you'll explore George Washington's former estate, Mount Vernon.
