    The White House is the center of the US presidency and is surprisingly accessible. Tickets for tours go quickly, the best bet for US citizens is to get tickets from your congressman.

    It was whitewashed after being burned by the British in the War of 1812, and ever since has been called "The White House." It is the residence and the working office for the President.

    Men spend hundreds of millions of dollars so that their friends can live here and further screw up our country.

    This is obviously the residence of the US President. There are tours here that can show you furniture, but you will not meet the actual President.

    The White House is a beautiful home with a large fountain in the front. They were working on Pennsylvania Avenue while I was there; however, you can walk to the fence and see it just fine.

    White House at night - A bit crooked, Sorry!

    The White House is an impressive building, even if you do not get to tour inside! Check out WhiteHouse.gov for info concerning tours. You have to arrange for a tour 1 to 6 months in advance.
