Washington DC Walking Tour of President's Park and White House Area

Washington DC Walking Tour of President's Park and White House Area

 

Description

If your “must do” list in America’s capital includes seeing the White House, you’ll want to see the rest of the President’s neighborhood too. Known as President’s Park, it’s a wonderful, walk-able, a bit off-the-beaten-path, early Federal-era pocket sometimes overlooked in a city that easily overwhelms.

Centered by the White House, it’s the rectangular area from the Ellipse on the south to Lafayette Park on the north; from 15th Street NW on the east, to 17th Street NW on the west. The President’s Park Walking Tour takes you all the way around it.

It’s primarily a walk-by adventure, an engaging scavenger hunt. There are two spectacular views of the Executive Mansion – both great photo ops – plus an eclectic mix of interesting places and sights, many with presidential connections. Some date to the earliest years of the federal city; others have an element of intrigue.

There’s something interesting to discover around every corner and down every street. Over here, there’s an astounding building; over there, a moving monument. Amazing statues rising from pockets of green tell a sliver of America’s story. Simple, flat-faced, brick Federal-era row houses line a shady street; intimate museums beckon; seemingly insignificant markers lend an air of mystery.

And, the White House? Picture perfect.

Important note about the White House:

The walking tour app does not enter White House grounds. Admission to the White House is by reserved ticket only, obtained through a tour request initiated through a U.S. citizen’s member of Congress or a foreign visitor’s Washington embassy up to 6 months in advance of, and no less than, 30 days before the desired visit.

The walking tour works its way around the White House, taking you to two locations for two iconic views of the South Façade and the North Façade. The text describes in detail what you the see in front of you, and provides a description of the rooms on each level.

The White House Visitor Center, a site along the tour route, provides a glimpse at what’s inside the President’s House through interesting exhibits and a 30 minute film.

It hurts to use this app

:
Interface is very crude: reminiscent of the web back in '93 (mainly text). The maps are very basic. GPS (so far as I can tell on my iPad) is limited to a red push-pin (you) and a blue push-pin (tourist destination); this is where I stopped using it. Once you get on a map you have to quit the app (on my iPad this meant double-tapping home and X'ing out of the app). Save your money and use the iPad's native map app.
