The White House, Washington D.C.
Take a self-guided tour of the White House, Tuesdays to Saturdays. As long as you have joined the queue before midday, you will get in. Visit the whole gem section of the American Natural History Museum, not just the Hope Diamond (and the Dresden diamond, currently on loan). Stand on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial where Martin Luther King gave his famous speech. See the original constitution and the declaration of independence in the National Archives. Walk around the Capitol building and also go down to the National Library. Go up the Washington Memorial for a bird's eye view of all that you've seen or are about to visit. Take a look at the TV and Film sections of the Museum of American History - original characters from Sesame Street and/or the Muppets, Dorothy's red slippers from the Wizard of OZ and Fonzie's leather jacket (Happy Days) being some of the exhibits.
Fondest memory: Entrance to everything is free, but in some cases you have to get there early enough to be allocated a ticket.

If you've always wanted to know how the White House really looks like inside or experience how the US Government works, I would highly recommend the FREE self-guided tour... er... but please make sure you don't go wandering into the wrong office like you-know-who's!
The White House is open for visits/ tours every Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 12 noon ONLY.

Favorite thing: Go see the White House. This is probably one of the most famous residences in the world. In this picture are (from left to right) my college roommates Brian and Bill.
