George Washington’s Grave

Washington's sarcophagus and wreath
Buried: Mount Vernon, Virginia
Died: December 14, 1799

See him: Washington’s Mount Vernon estate is now a historical park open to the admission-paying public. The tomb is along a short, well-marked path beyond the main house. I recommend dropping by for one of the two daily wreath ceremonies; it’s a nice way to pay one’s respects, plus it’s one of the few moments in which they open the gate and one can get an unobstructed view and photo of the tomb.
