The ride on the boat was interesting and relaxing. The time at Mt Vernon was just right with ample time to visit all the sites and enjoy the videos and informational displays. Very enjoyable day trip.
We had a great time. The river cruise was wonderful. We would have liked a little more time at Mt Vernon (maybe 4 hours instead of 3) but we did see everything. Highly recommend.
