The White House is a nice place to visit but I would not want to live there. I prefer a place with more privacy and less drama like the Vice Presidental home across the street. Still the White house is a great place to visit. Recently, tenants who had been in the house for eight years moved out and new tenants moved in. We will see what the new occupants do with the house. The White House is best viewed in the Spring when cherry blossoms are in bloom. Do not miss the cherry blossoms! Other than that, check out Christmas morning. The White House Christmas tree is appealing as are nearby trees of all the states! Take a subway to get into DC and avoid parking! Recent parties at the White House have left it no worse for wear! (No one could have left it a worse mess than Andrew Johnson once did). The current residents seem to have looked forward to living in the House and actually campaigned to move there. I think the former residents moved to Texas. If that is the case, I do not blame them either. DC traffic is especially bad but one does not have to go so far as Texas to avoid it. The White House is worth a visit. If offered a chance to live there, I would humbly decline. I have many ideas for renovation and will make myself available if called upon. Steven Robert Heine.
Thanks to our Rep. Randy Forbes for arranging our tour. Makes me proud to be an American.
Great place to spend some time and think about why America is great.
