Our tour bus trip stopped here so we could see The White House. We didn't have a tour but just seeing it was a privilege.
On our way back to the bus I saw a tree with a large trunk and huge branch coming out...More
Went for a evening walk near White House and saw from outside . There is a a visitor centre available on the other side of the road though but that requires lot of other paper work and Govt official work to be done before arriving...More
In comparison with the surounding buildings, it's actually quite small. Although it might also look like that since you aren't allowed to get that close. But still, it's the home of the president so it should be seen
Non-American citizens are unable to visit the White House unlike in the past, so the White House can really be viewed from the 2 opposite sides from quite a distance and through the surrounding fence. It gets pretty crowded and there are numerous protestors and...More
Beautiful Place to Visit and can take very good pictures of yourself and your family. The location is easily reachable and security staff, which includes the secret service personal are very very cooperative and helpful.
First off, you have to request a White House tour through your state congressman. About 2-3 weeks before you go to DC (because you give the congressman the dates you’re going there) you’ll get a time and date when you’re going. The tour isn’t guided...More
Having visited Washington DC and its many sites on a number of occasions, I wasn’t very disappointed to see another set of barricades around the White House, meaning visitors were further away than in the past. While the building is still v dry iconic, being...More
See the front and rear but the roads somtimes are closed so plan time for multiple visits just in case for night and day time. Roads usually close for the president coming and going with police blocking off roads AND paths everywhere causing frustration for...More
Of all the things we’ve done and seen in DC, the WH tour had to be one of our favorites. You need to submit a request well in advance. Also, consider hiring a tour guide to escort you through or you’ll miss important details.

Seen the White House from outside anyone can do any time! But to have a White House Tour you can’t do on the day of visiting! For that you have to apply least 3-6 months in advance (as far as I have heard from others) in order to get the Security Clearance! Go on White House website and find out how to apply for it!
I have been there 4-5 times but everytime seen it from outside only as it is not possible for us to plan our tour 6 months in advance as we are full time working people!
Good luck and enjoy the tour.

You could leave your bags on the tour bus to the White House if you are taking a private one. Otherwise, I would contact the White House Visitor Center and ask them what you should do. Have a great trip. It is a special... More
