Mount Vernon Trip - Public Transport

How long does it take to get to Mount Vernon by Metro/Bus ??

Assuming we spend 2 hours there, is it possible to do the entire trip in about 5 hours ??

Yes, you can do the entire trip in 5 hours (although you might want to spend more than 2 hours in order to see everything there). Information on public transit is here:

Only 2 hours at Mount Vernon is not enough. There is a whole lot to see and do there besides walk through the mansion. http://www.mountvernon.org/

If you are a group, it is not much more expensive to take the Yellow Line to Huntington, then a taxi the last 7 miles, at least take a cab going, getting back by bus, which is easier to time, especially if you are not in a big hurry to get back to DC.
