This District destination is a national historic landmark. Completed in 1816, the neoclassical house opened its doors to the public in 1988 and seeks to connect visitors to their own stories and to American history. House tours are available, though you may want to embark on those with your older kids. You and your nature-loving progeny can also enjoy tours of the 5.5 acres of broad lawns and kid-friendly nooks (self-guided and guided options are available). Pick up a print map when you arrive and, if you visit this summer, look out for the forthcoming smartphone audio tour. You’ll also find various festivals and programs at this urban oasis.
