If you want a tour inside the White House, contact you congressman about three months in advance. They will set it up with the White House, and the White House will contact you. If you don’t respond to that email quickly enough, you’ve lost your shot, just like I did. I still enjoyed seeing it, but really wanted to be inside!

I imagined a huge palace and was surprised to see a tiny white house which is as normal as any house. A very nice place. Must visit for a lifetime. I was very happy here.

Well worth taking the time to stop by if your in Washington DC. The house looks bigger on TV however it is very impressive. To get a tour inside you need to organize it through your member of Congress.

This is worth a 5 minute photo shoot only if you are in the area. You are set back a bit so you are not that close. However it does take a great photo.

I have been involved in Government and Politics for over 20 years, so I sometimes forget just how fortunate I am to have had some amazing opportunities. I have been in the White House several times, most recently in the east wing in May. It is a special experience.
