The White House
4.6/5
1,011 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.
Washington Monument
4.5/5

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.
Lincoln Memorial
4.7/5
700 Reviews
Memorial Hall
The Lincoln Memorial is an American national monument built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is located at the western end of the National Mall, across from the Washington Monument. The building is in the form of a Greek Doric temple and contains a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and inscriptions of two well-known speeches by Lincoln, "The Gettysburg Address" and his Second Inaugural Address. The Lincoln Memorial has been the site of many famous speeches, including Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, delivered on August 28, 1963. 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.
