People tend to check in during these times:
Night photos are good here. You'll need someone else to take it to make it good. Turn around and get the Washington Monument. Photosphere to get them both.
Been here for a number of Marine One departures and arrivals during the past several administrations.
What to say.. It's the White house!!!
Late afternoon, early evenings appear less crowded
It was amazing! Loved seeing the history, the photos, and hearing different stories from USSS. Would definitely recommend but be prepared for long lines and possibly waiting longer than you thought.
Always a packed spot in DC
They r doing tours u gave to book 3weeks to 6 mths ahead
Wave hi to @newmediajim
If you want to see sunny and bo, get there around 5pm when they're doing their afternoon walk!!!
Too bad they are not doing tours anymore as I can't remember I time when they have not. The view from the South lawn is far and you might have a better view from the North lawn.
If you're in a hurry this spot is perfect for a last minute picture in front of the White House!!!
Free garden tours on the south lawn!
Don't try to climb the fence!!
If you want to have a tour you must submit an application through your embassy 6 months in advance.
While in the White House, the Clinton's had two pets a cat named Socks and a dog named Buddy.
If you want to take a photo in front of the WH, north side is much better.
it's fun to watch Marine One land and take off. Otherwise not much to see here.
Taking the tour
It looks pretty good now, but have you seen the pictures from the 70's when they had summer patch? It was awesome!
Do not leave anything unattended, you will get yelled at
The South Lawn was a favorite spot for President Carter to go jogging.
The day of Reagan's first inauguration was also the day American hostages in Iran were released. Seven days later on January 27, 1981, the President greeted them on the South Lawn of the White House.
