The facilities are good and high security. Very different from what I had thought would exist. Somewhat like large commercial office buildings. I5 certainly gave insight to where interviews, etc were conducted for TV. I would not make a second visit.

It was great to visit the senate and see all the places inside. Would actually visit again as I was a bit rushed. Make sure you have something to eat before you go as you might be distracted if you are hungry.

Overall, it was nice having the contact at the Senate building. She got us the tour and we were able to accomplish it with ease. I was disappointed we were not able to get into the White House.

We had to meet here to get our White House passes. While at the office, Diane Black popped out. She is so nice. Took pics with us. And we ended up with a private tour!
