Visited The Hermitage to pass a half day before flying home and found it an interesting and informative tour about General Jackson's life and experiences in the American War of Independence and his time as President. Recommended.

They sell beverages at several locations so no need to pack your own. The length of the walk is up to you. For just the house and gardens probably less than 1 1/4 miles. Is tour all of the hounds maybe 3 miles?
