  • Beautiful, historic grounds nestled along the waterfront. The Park Ranger giving the house tour was an amazing orator! His presentation was informative, fun, and full of rhythm and grace. I would recommend a visit just to experience his performance. I didn't plan to visit on the day I did visit. I was returning home from a weekend in Virginia when I saw the classic brown sign, and HAD to stop by. So my agenda was simple curiosity. I wished I had more time to spend. There is a small beach which you can enjoy. There are trails (I walked one briefly), and plenty of historical significance. The views are lovely. I was very lucky to make it for the house tour just shortly after my arrival.
  • Nice little monument for the birthplace of George Washington. Great beach and park area! Great place to bike as well and take your date too. However, the memorial area is somewhat small and could be improved upon. Still a fun place to visit however and free admission!
  • Lots of great stuff to do here. The visitors center side is beautifully landscaped, with the memorial house and a working farm. Across the creek there are nature tails, a picnic area and a small beach where you can find sharks teeth! There are frequently special programs here. Best of all, free admission!
  • Absolutely amazing. Great tour. Beautiful landscape through out the entire property. Must be seen by any and everyone. Worried about the expenses?? Don't be, it's FREE!! (Tip your tour guide)
  • I believe I found 2 trees young George didnt cut down, over by the propane tanks. No charge for admission or parking. 14 minute movie produced when i was in elementary school. Take the burial ground road to the end, it has a small beach that puts u right out in the Potomac.
