The White House
4.6/5
1,047 Reviews
Historical Architecture
The White House is the official residence and workplace of the President of the United States. The building was designed by Irish-born architect James Hoban in a neoclassical style. It is located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW in Washington, D.C. and has been the residence of every U.S. President since John Adams in 1800. Burnt by the British during the war of 1812, the White House has been remodeled and expanded several times over the years. While it is possible to tour parts of the White House interior, arrangements are difficult and must be made months in advance. As the symbol of US presidential power, the White House is an enormously important landmark.

Monument
The Washington Monument is a massive obelisk on the National Mall built to commemorate the life of George Washington, the first president of the United States. It is recognized as the world’s tallest stone structure, and is the tallest structure in Washington D.C. The monument is an iconic image of America, let alone D.C., and one would have to really try to miss it on a visit. Relatively unknown is that the monument has an enclosed observation deck at its top that is open for visits at no cost. Book a time slot and make sure to be ready when the elevator opens.

Abraham Lincoln is widely regarded as America's greatest president and the monument in his memory is an important public gathering place and national symbol.
