Come take a tour of our nation’s capital.

The White House is a special place that holds a lot of significance in American history. This is the place where the President of the United States of America resides during his time as president. The White House is a beautiful 6-story building with 132 rooms, 35 bathrooms, and a kitchen that can serve up to 140 guests at a time. Up to 570 gallons of paint are used to keep the White House looking its best throughout the years. The inside of the White House is beautifully decorated year-round. Each of the rooms gives off its own personal character as you tour the rooms. The grounds outside are kept in pristine condition as well, and guests are welcome to look around the gardens.

President George Washington chose the site for the White House back in 1791. In 1792, the cornerstone was laid and the design for the building was created and finalized. It wasn’t until 1800 when President John Adams was able to move into it. The White House has been known as the President’s Palace, the President’s House, and the Executive Mansion. It wasn’t until 1901 when President Theodore Roosevelt gave this building's official name as the White House.

Visitors can schedule a time to get a tour of the White House with a Senator of their choice to take them through this tour. You can see for yourself the historical magnificence that the White House holds. There are also seasonal events hosted at the White House, such as the Easter egg hunt, where people can interact with the President, the First Lady, and Congress members. This historical site welcomes all who would like to see and feel the significance that the White House holds for American citizens. Make sure to set a time to visit while you’re in D.C.
