Ft. Hunt is a free access National Park, and it has National Park Service Offices onsite. It is a former German POW camp, but the best feature of this park is its natural beauty, many trees and paths, and plenty of picnic areas and restrooms. Come down the GW parkway to visit Mount Vernon, but stop along the way at the Safeway at the Belleview Shopping center to pick up ingredients for a nice breakfast or lunch to be consumed outdoors at Ft. Hunt! I say this because the food at Mt. Vernon (other than at the Inn) is not very good. Another great thing to do here is to jog, roller skate and bicycle, since there is a nice long circular road around the main park area.
