About The White House

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.

    In the past, when watching news broadcasts, I always inadvertently heard - "White House announcement, Chinese President visits White House". The White House is the official residence and office of the President of the United States. The term "White House" often refers to the government of the United States. It is a white neoclassical sandstone building. In an era when the people of the United States and the world were good friends, there were no terrorist attacks. The White House could be visited at that time. If you can visit it free of charge, you should make an appointment with the embassy. When the White House was built, it wasn't a sacred place. The White House appeared in many big movies in the United States. You have to see it here in Washington. Crossing Capitol Hill, across the National Square, walking to the White House entrance, there are police guards and police cars garrisoned, it would be better to come at 3:30 because he will be cleared later. The White House, which can be said to be the most insignificant building in Washington, is far away and incomplete. It should be possible to make an appointment for a visit. It used to be in a six-month queue or something. Now it's a family survey. I don't know how long it will take to queue. I want to see how long it will last. I really feel it's a very low-key place near the White House. If it weren't for the crowd gathered outside, it might have been missed. The White House itself is only visible, and a large circle is blocked. All kinds of flowers and trees decorate the surroundings beautifully, as if it were a street garden.

    Recently we successfully entered the White House for a visit! The interior decoration and furniture of the White House reveal elegant tastes. Every President has left his mark, which is the Museum of the President of the United States. Many scenes originally seen only on TV or in the news (the President's banquet hall, the President's lounge, the library, the room for the press conference, etc.) arrived in person and felt that their identity was also growing. Friends who want to know how to visit the White House can trust me.~

    After 36 hours of sleeplessness, three flights were changed, and finally arrived in Washington DC on a sunny afternoon. The hotel room was not ready yet. So I walked to the White House with curiosity and joy, regardless of fatigue. Two kilometers away, through the Rose Garden, the presidential palace, which appeared in countless movies and TV shows, is in front of us. As the residence and administrative center of the President of the United States, every voice and decision of the White House will affect the world. Countless visitors, including demonstrators, have come to the DC to take pictures. Fortunately for me, soon after the photo was taken, the police began to drive the crowd away and everyone retreated to the outside of the park.

    Washington Ending: As the capital of the United States, there are many important state organs, and the buildings are mainly classical and magnificent. There are not many residents in the central area of the state organs, except a few tourists who are politicians in suits and leather. Excluding the period of major national conferences, it is said that only in April when cherry blossoms are in full bloom, cherry blossoms and Capitol Hill are crowded. Cherry blossoms are in full bloom around the Tidal Lake and the monument, as well as near the National Square.

    Since only one day is reserved in Washington, we have to go to the White House in the evening. The White House at night is different from many promotional photographs. The security is so strict that tourists can only see through two railings, but the houses next to them which are used to entertain VIPs from all over the world look more elegant. But the White House is well worth visiting. Recommend

    The White House - the place where successive presidents of the United States live, the synonym of American politics, and the place of world attention. There are no such barriers as Zhongnanhai. People are playing with pulleys at random in the square in front of the White House. The police are also walking around and chatting with them. At the entrance to the gate, there is even an old woman protesting that her son died in Vietnam War. She has been protesting for many years. It is not wordless to give money to take pictures with her. ,

    See that white building? That's the famous White House. It's far away from tourists. It's not very luxurious and magnificent. It's surrounded by a good environment. There are squirrels eating on the lawn. It's lovely. There's a car selling clothes beside it. I wanted to buy a souvenir, but the tour guide just hurried on.

    The White House is the residence and office of the President of the United States. It is a white neoclassical sandstone building. It was built in 1800. In 1812, after the war between Britain and the United States, the British army occupied Washington City and set fire to buildings including the Capitol Building and the Presidential Palace. Later, in order to cover up the traces of the fire, it was painted white in 1814. President Theodore Roosevelt was officially named the White House in 1902. Part of the White House is open to citizens all over the world within the prescribed time, so it has become a hot spot for tourists.

    Speaking of Washington, everyone told me to go to the White House. Today, I did not disappoint. Finally, I came to the White House! __________ But before going to the White House, I went to the Lincoln Memorial on a fine day, and the monument was in the distance! There is a huge Christmas tree beside the White House. The biggest feeling is! Forehead! Not feeling

    Washington, as the capital and political center, has little impetuosity and prosperity in New York metropolis, and is more a cultural and historical accumulation. The U.S. three separate powers, Congress, the White House and the Supreme Court, are all here. The White House is at the north end of the Capitol Square. There is a quiet road in front of the gate. Visitors can take photos outside the yard fence at the North gate. The world's strongest presidential office is similar to a mansion. It doesn't look grand, it doesn't feel tall at all. There is a large lawn in front of the South Gate, which is not open to tourists.
