Construction Barricades All Around In March, we were in Washington, DC, for my wife to attend several days of meetings on Capitol Hill, so I got to roam solo. We were staying at the Hay-Adams Hotel, so I took a stroll through Lafayette Park to the White House. The weather was gloomy, but that is not what struck me about the White House - there were construction barricades all around it, at least on the north side, by Lafayette Park. The weather was the least of distractions. Seems that the fencing was being replaced in a fairly major construction project. Now, I have visited the White House on previous trips, plus I could see it from our room in the hotel, but it was just not a welcoming site, behind the barricades this time. One positive was that the masses of protestors, usually camped out along the North Lawn, had been moved, for the construction, so all was not lost. On this trip, the best views were from the Hay-Adams. We will be back in DC later in the year, and I hope that this project will have been finished by then, as from ground level, there was just not a lot to see - a disappointment.

This incredibly majestic structure is definitely the People’s House! We couldn’t get close (understandably with all the craziness in our world) but we appreciated the beauty and majesty of the White House from afar, including the beauty and serenity of the grounds! Gorgeous to visit, regardless of your politics. Take your children and show them where 1/3 of our government lives and governs!

Can't say you have been in Washington, DC without visiting the White House right? So i gave it a try. After taking a long walk from The National Mall i was so very disappointed to see that the building was under renovation and there wasn't much to see. Unless you take the tour inside the house i think is not worth it to go check it out from the outside because it's too far away from the streets which in many cases are closed to the public. There are many others wonderful landmarks in Washington, DC worth your time.
