  • Free Things to Do: "Tickets are in short supply so book as far in advance as possible."
  • Best Attractions & Activities: "You can get free tickets to tour parts of The White House. Just go through the office of your member of Congress or Embassy if not a U.S. citizen. A tour must be planned far in advance and tickets go on a first-come, first-serve basis."
  • Sightseeing, Historic Sites: "If you would like a tour, go through your congressional member's office to receive free tickets. Make sure to call months in advance."
  • Best for Free Things to Do Because: No trip to the nation's capital is complete without a visit to this famous house.
  • Recommended as Best Attractions & Activities Because: This is the most famous house in America (Sorry Kardashians)and has housed every U.S. President and thier family except George Washington.
  • Best for Sightseeing Because: You can't come to Washington, D.C. and not get a selfie of yourself smiling in front of America's House.
  • Best for Historic Sites Because: No other site in the nation's capital has as much historical significance as The White House.
