Mt. Vernon virtual mansion tour

Have you ever been to Mt. Vernon, George Washington's home?  It is located in Virginia, a short distance from Washington, DC.

I have been lucky enough to go there a couple of times.  It is a beautiful estate, and it oozes the feeling of importance that it should.  How cool is it to touch the banister that George and Martha Washington did?  I love that kind of stuff!

Anyway, while looking for more Presidential information, I came upon a virtual tour of Mt. Vernon.  I think it would be a great thing to share with students.  Click on the picture below to access the tour.

If you get the chance to visit our nation's capital, I highly recommend making the effort to get out to Mt.Vernon.  It can be accessed by public transportation (train and bus), and it is well worth it!  Plan on a long visit--the mansion is beautiful and interesting, but the museum located on the estate grounds is interactive, informative, and fun, too!
