Description
The White House As a Home Walking Tour Photos (4)

The White House is a home that hosts the first family and some people who work on their permanent staff. You are walked through the places that tell you what it is like to live here, and you are shown how much harder it is to live in a place such as this. The tour is fun because it takes you to every level of the property, and you start noticing how growing up here could be weird.

There are many people who prefer to come to the White House as part of their Washington trip, but they have not necessarily seen the White House before. The White House helps you have a wonderful time with the people in the group, and the staff answers your questions as you walk through. You see things that might be the living quarters, the kitchen, and the offices. You are taken on the lawn, and you see how many people work here.

The White House is also an office, and you learn how they have managed to put an office and a house together. You see the expanse of this place, and you will find that it is much more magnificent than you thought.

There are tickets online for this tour, and you must take this tour as soon as possible because it provides you with a simple way to get out of the busy city. You can build your trip around this tour, and you are enlightened all the same.

The tour is an affordable and fun way to see the White House learn American history.

In addition to serving the country as a museum and being the president's office, the White House must serve as a home for the First Families. Since 1800 First Families have experienced their time in the White House very differently. Enter President Theodore Roosevelt, his wife Edith and six children ---- Alice, Ted, Kermit, Ethel, Archie and Quentin. Along with them came spirited spitballs hurled with perfect accuracy, a menagerie that would make a zookeeper's head spin and a father who loved crazy antics with his children almost as much as they did!! The White House was, indeed, the Roosevelt Family's home!!

Quentin Roosevelt (a professional actor/interpreter) will meet you and as you stroll the President's Neighborhood together, he'll share memories of his family's days in the White House. If you don't already know about them, Quentin will tell you all about the White House Gang, his group of friends that considered the attic of the White House their headquarters.

 This is our favorite walk for families. Quentin is not much more that a child himself. And he arrives with wonderful stories peppered with childish enthusiasm.

The walk does not go into the White House or onto the White House grounds.  After the walk, you may want to stop by the White House Visitor Center for more information about the White House as a home.
