George Washington’s Mount Vernon Joins Monticello and Montpelier to Create Virginia’s Premier Presidential Trail

February 19, 2014 Destination North America No Comments Email Email

George Washington’s Mount Vernon, the nation’s most visited historic estate, has joined Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello and James Madison’s Montpelier to expand the “Presidents Passport,” Virginia’s premier presidential trail.

These estates, conveniently located near beautifully-preserved and highly-walkable historic downtowns of Alexandria and Charlottesville, create a getaway complete with all the elements cultural travelers desire, with award-winning dining, shopping and accommodations plus a picturesque waterfront.

The “Presidents Passport” program provides visitors with insider information and exclusive savings to more than 50 of the area’s top restaurants and attractions, encouraging visitors to experience these bustling towns that George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Cordato Partners-www.tourismlegal.com.auJames Madison once called home. As an added bonus to this year’s program, visitors to the Alexandria Visitors Center at 221 King St. showing or purchasing a ticket to any of the three presidential estates will, upon request, receive for free Alexandria’s “Key to the City” pass, which grants access into nine historic sites and museums in Alexandria — a $26 added value.

To celebrate the expansion, the Charlottesville Albemarle Convention & Visitors Bureau (CACVB) and the Alexandria Convention & Visitors Association (ACVA), plus all three historical sites will hold a sweepstakes beginning Presidents Day (February 17, 2014), featuring a five-day getaway exploring historic Charlottesville, Orange and Alexandria. Winners will also enjoy admission into George Washington’s Mount Vernon, Monticello and Montpelier.

The sweepstakes grand prize drawing will be held on March 17, 2014. Registration for the Presidents Passport and sweepstakes is free, and all “passport holders” are automatically entered to win.

The “Presidents Passport” program is supported by a marketing partnership between the ACVA, CACVB, Mount Vernon, Monticello and Montpelier, promoting travel between each historic city and featured site. Launched in 2012, it is made possible by a generous grant from the Virginia Tourism Corporation. By signing up for the Presidents Passport program, visitors can take advantage of a variety of deals and discounts. Learn more atPresPassport.Monticello.org.
