Tour the White House

The White House is one of the most beautiful homes in the country and certainly the most famous. It’s also the signature landmark for our nation’s capital, one of the most popular tourist sites in the United States.


Although tours to this magnificent home are more difficult to obtain than they used to be, it can still be done. Tours are arranged through a group’s representative to Congress, and the group must be 10 or more. These tours require significant advanced planning, and frequent confirmation as the appointment can be shuffled due to a higher security level or other circumstances.


This tour is, however, worth the extra steps required. The home was built, furnished, and decorated with the sole intention to make an impressive statement about the powerful country it represents.


An interesting fact about the White House
When George Washington decided to build the White House, there were controversies over where to build it, whether north or south. Washington finally chose the land between the Maryland and Virginia, who were at the border, and they happy to donate the land where the White House is currently located, not north or south, but in one district, the Colombian district.
