Here are some tips and information for those wishing to visit us on one of our special event days where heavy crowds are expected: President's Day, Revolutionary War Weekend, and the 4th of July.

Transportation Tips and Recommendations

  • Consider using ride sharing services such as Uber or Lyft to make your way to Mount Vernon
  • The Fairfax County Bus Connector #101 is a 20-minute ride from the Huntington Avenue metro station. Learn more about public transportation options
  • Consider parking in one of our overflow parking locations.  We offer free shuttle service between those lots and Mount Vernon.  See the list below
  • Please respect our neighbors' properties - park only in designated areas
