The White House is a must see while visiting DC! In the Covid virus era you cannot expect to tour the president's home. So you get out and walk around the building. In the Christmas season you best see the White House by timing your visit to see the National Christmas Tree. Do this at night. One way to do this is by a bus tour. We live in the DC area. We recommend renting a car and driving through the city. Get out of your car and walk around the White House. While your renting a car make certain you see nearby buildings: Renwick Gallery:Lincoln Memorial; Washington Monument ( you won't be able to walk or ride to the top of this monument during the Covid era}; The US Capital is best viewed by car, park and walk around because you will not be allowed in due to Covid; National Archives (check to see if you can tour inside); the Outdoor monuments including but not limited to the Viet Nam Memorial, The Martin Luther King memorial; and The FDR Memorial. You can see the outdoor monuments during the Covid era.

Construction Barricades All Around In March, we were in Washington, DC, for my wife to attend several days of meetings on Capitol Hill, so I got to roam solo. We were staying at the Hay-Adams Hotel, so I took a stroll through Lafayette Park to the White House. The weather was gloomy, but that is not what struck me about the White House - there were construction barricades all around it, at least on the north side, by Lafayette Park. The weather was the least of distractions. Seems that the fencing was being replaced in a fairly major construction project. Now, I have visited the White House on previous trips, plus I could see it from our room in the hotel, but it was just not a welcoming site, behind the barricades this time. One positive was that the masses of protestors, usually camped out along the North Lawn, had been moved, for the construction, so all was not lost. On this trip, the best views were from the Hay-Adams. We will be back in DC later in the year, and I hope that this project will have been finished by then, as from ground level, there was just not a lot to see - a disappointment.
