The White House, Washington DC

(3.9/5 based on 4,800+ reviews on the web)
The simple name is doesn’t match the power that comes with The White House. This recognizable house serves as the home and workplace of the president of the United States. Originally completed in 1800, the building has housed every U.S. President. Its exterior showcases Neoclassical architectural style, including Greek columns and its signature white facade. The complex itself contains the presidential residence, the West and East Wings, and an executive office building. The Oval Office within the West Wing hosts many of the president's daily meetings and acts as the nerve center for the entire building. To tour the White House, you must arrange your visit through a Member of Congress. Tour reservations are extremely limited. Even if you can't go on a tour, be sure to walk by to see the exterior of this famous residence. Our Washington DC trip itinerary planner makes visiting The White House and other Washington DC attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • This is the best landmark in the Washington, DC area! With the future president living in here (Donald Trump), this place will look even better! The mansion is big, white, and majestic. I love this place! :-)
  • I enjoyed visiting our countries symbol of freedom. Having a tour of it was even better. It was so beautiful inside and out. I suggest seeing it both day and night, don't forget to take pictures. As an American citizen, everyone should have a chance to see and experience the power and feeling of the amazing White House. Not everybody always has this opportunity, so if you do make sure you don't take it for granted and most importantly try your best to give everyone this experience. I would describe the White House as a beautiful freedom powerhouse.
  • It was a grand feeling to explore the Whitehouse and the whole procedure was so straight forward and easy that I encourage everyone to do that while you still can. Who knows what Trump will do...
  • God important the devil has been possessing and forcing angels to do horrific disgusting abusive things since they were very young and vulnerable its a situation of lies and one doubt or both lies not sure don't have full memory but then he changes everything about them and when he possesses it feels like your heart breaks especially when that young and i nearly got to talk to you in leicester once when about three years old on market street I think and then he possessed after my mother made me go to the side and started shouting. God please create a truth pill not use the demons one and ask them to take it I will definitely take one need to talk about a lot of angels and how they have been tortured and hurt and healed and memories repressed/forgotten of what's happened thinking its people at times and not knowing who you are please view time as proof or put the devil in hell and find me Ive been sectioned in wales caephilly for shouting trying to talk at tesco carpark.the devil possesses the whole angels life and other angels the most vulnerable harmed by more demons than you realise!!!!!
