  • Bike along the wooded Mount Vernon Trail
  • Return to Alexandria on board a pleasure boat of the Potomac River
  • Wander the gardens and farms of Washington's former plantation
  • Go inside George Washington's study, once reserved for a privileged few
Bike to the home of the 1st President of the United States on a full-day tour to George Washington’s historic Mount Vernon plantation. Wander the ground and gardens. Then, return by bike, or cruise back along the Potomac River by boat.
What to Expect
Enjoy a full-day bike ride to and from Mount Vernon on the banks of the Potomac River, or rest your legs on the return journey and travel by boat!

Meet in the Old Town of Alexandria to pick-up your bike and helmet. Then, cycle along the wooded Mount Vernon Trail to George Washington’s historic Mount Vernon Estate and Gardens.

Lock your bike outside the estate for tour staff to pick up. Then, spend the day self-exploring the grounds and mansion house. The mansion’s interior has mostly been restored to the appearance at the time of George and Martha Washington's occupancy. Enter Washington’s study and feel a part of history!

Take time for lunch, and enjoy a leisurely stroll in the gardens and farm. Then, bike back to Alexandria, or opt to return by boat. Climb aboard the Miss Christin for the 16:00 departure from Mount Vernon’s dock. Relax on the narrated cruise as you glide back to Alexandria's Old Town.
