(Activities change every two hours)
They say you can see the entire place in two hours but with all the reenactors, walking tours, boat rides, children's room and exhibits it is just best to plan a full day. You can't take pictures inside the mansion. But, oh if we could have, I would have taken a picture of the first presidential chair and the bed he died on. His bedroom and office was beautiful.
They have a food court in the Education Center and a sit down restaurant. No need to bring pack lunches. However, we like picnics so we went back to the car and ate what we planned for the day because Beloved was going to take us to his favorite restaurant in this area. It's a Man Restaurant that is for sure! Everything is served in big platters on trash can lids, holes in the middle of the tables for trash, and you come out extremely messy!
