Create an itinerary including White House
The simple name is doesn’t match the power that comes with 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. To visit White House and get the most from your holiday in Washington DC, create itinerary details personal to you using our Washington DC tour itinerary planner.

  • We hadn't been in a couple years but things have changed. You can't get to the fence around the White House so taking pictures is a challenge.
