We got to see many of the public rooms, including the Green Room, the Pink Room, and the Blue Room. Each room... More

My brother had to tell me I was actually at the White House! When you approach it looks like a park with wide open gathering space until I finally realized this is the place. It is impressive! Unfortunately we came the day after some nut jumped the fence so I couldn't get as close as I would have liked but... More

Gorgeous afternoon, sunny Nov 25th, day before Thanksgiving. Wonderful time in WashDC. Grateful to be alive and live in a free country. Home seems small, though loaded with history! ENJOY!

Of course its an absolute must see in Washington DC....The White House.... You can still walk in front of it and take all the pictures you want...even in a time of extra security. Well worth visiting.

You need to talk to your local congressman to get passes for the White House and it may take a while but its worth it. There's so much history inside with furniture that dates back to our founding fathers. When going through there are plenty of people well educated on the house.
