It makes for the perfect night out on the town with family and friends as you spend a few hours strolling around and getting into the festive spirit going from one attraction to the next.
While you attend this exciting event, you’ll be getting a dose of history as well! You’ll learn about George Washington along with how the holidays were celebrated during the eighteenth century as you explore the mansion and listen to classical music from that time.
