The River Farm is 25 acres of beautiful landscaped area which was once part of George Washington's estate. It is also the home of the National Horticulture Society. One of the coolest things you can see is a set of White House gates that were first installed in 1819 as part of the repair to the building after the war of 1812. Some of the flowers and shrubbery that surround the house is 100 years old! Can you believe it? As a side note this place is also available for weddings and heaven help me I would get married all over again at this place. Goregousness doesn't even accurately describe all the hidden and out in the open gems on this property.

I definitely recommend adding this to the list of places to see. It can be low-key, the kids can get some energy out and you can see all the beauty nature has to offer. The kids ran and explored and it was absolutely lovely!
