Mount Vernon by Bike and Boat!
Bike to Mount Vernon with this self-guided one-way ride on the Mount Vernon Trail. This scenic trail takes riders through Dykes Marsh and Belle View Park.

Vernon Estate.

Explore the 21 room mansion, slave quarters, stables,16 sided barn (designed by Washington), working farm with rare breed farm animals (similar to the ones that Washington kept), and gardens as they looked in 1799. Pick a spot on the grounds to enjoy the picnic lunch you bought and brought with you.
Then board the Miss Christin for a narrated boat ride on the Potomac River, back to Old Town Alexandria.
