You cannot be in DC without at least going to have a look at the White House! In those days, security was not anywhere near like today's requirements.
The White House. Enough said...
No longer doing tours following Sept 11.
Give it a look - You are in the U.S Capital after all...
Even if you don't get to see inside, it's still exciting to see in person. The White House is an impressive building!
This is a closer view of the oval back porch enjoyed by the Bushes during their stay. You can actually see the chandeliers burning inside.
Queues for the White House tour. Of course, you've to wake up early to catch it. The information center told us that you've to arrive before 7.30am to get the tickets.
