We were not able to get on a tour of the inside of the White House, but were able to view the building and south lawn through the fence. The original building, constructed largely by enslaved Africans, has been added on to and renovated through...More

Any visit to DC would be incomplete without a visit to the White House. You can always snap a few photos from outside, but visiting inside requires some advance planning. You need to contact your Congressman at least 21 days in advance and as much...More

The White House is worth visiting, even if you don’t book the tour months in advance having a picture taken outside is pretty neat. There are two sides, front and back giving different views, although at the moment the construction work blocks a good view...More

Well this was one I wanted to see and tick off the bucket list, seen it, not as big as I thought it was going to be, didn’t get to go in, bit off the main drag.

Eh, what can I saw- it looks like it does in the movies. I wasn’t moved or stirred by it. It was nice to see once and snap a pic but that’s about it.

Not content with building walls !!, there is now a fence going up around the White House so that you can only see it from one tiny area. Lots of tourists there with us & lots of jostling for position to take photos. Not impressed.

This was our first time in the White House, very cool experience! You are not allowed to bring any bags, cell phone and tiny wallet are ok. You have to go through multiple security checkpoints, which my kids found fascinating, lots of secret service and...More

One of the iconic residences in the world, regardless of who occupies it and well worth a short stop just to have a look. Actually a handsome building but smaller than you expect. Excellent security system.

Yes, try parking at one of the hotels and if not there are several parking decks. Also ask the individual who set up your Tour 😊

Contact your Congressman. They will have a person who handles the requests for a tour. You need to do it as soon as you can, 90 days prior to your visit. There are limited spots and they fill up quickly.
