The White House


Member Rating 5 out of 5 by vampirefan on January 13, 2005

One of the most well-known addresses is right here in Washington at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, currently home to George and Laura Bush. Since 9/11, the only way to tour the White House is as part of a group, but check www.whitehouse.gov prior to your visit to see if anything has changed, or check with your local congressperson’s office. When we went, military veterans were allowed to get advanced tickets through a congressperson.

Today, about all you can do is walk in front of the gates outside and look around. Most people want to have their pictures taken in front of the White House, so there is never a shortage of people around to ask to take your picture. During peak times, there are hordes of people in front of the White House, so please be considerate to others and limit your time here. If you want to discuss politics, the President, or White House architecture, do that elsewhere.
