We took our youth tour to Lafayette Square so that the students could learn more about our nation's history and so that we could get some great photos with the kids and the White House. Every year we come here, we also see protestors here. However, the place is crawling with security, and it's very safe. This stop gives our students another glimpse into what it means to be an American... not many other countries would allow you to set up your protest across the street from your leader's home.

my bf and i went to lafayette to celebrate our 2 year anniversary.
i love roof top terraces and my bf told me that pictures on the internet showed people on the roof top. bf was diappointed when we came and was seated at the first floor of the resturant beside a window, but the maitre d' made up for everything.
we asked him if we could see the view from the roof top and he said he will make arrangements for one of the securities to take us upstairs.
the security guy was sooo friendly! the private tour really made our night! (there was an engagement party at the roof top so it wasnt just us up there!)
but all in all our experience here is very good, they really helped make our anniversary a night to remember, not to mention good food of course! :)

Thank lovetotryplaces
