the white house is still the white house

Red Room

The White house is open to the public again on March 7th, it had been closed since the change in administration. Since  we have a new president the west wing is still the same ,  a great place to go for history. This time is  ideal  since there will be more  Obama family  artifacts . There is probably  little change  made to what visitors have to see , since its all about historic artifacts and culture.


The different rooms in the white house (red, green,blue, dining room, oval office ,etc.) have historic artifacts that should not be removed no matter what president is in there. Any incoming president can make changes on their living quarters , which is not open to the public.  I loved the great experience.

1600 Pennsylvania Ave- a few months left

The White House

The White House

There is less than 6 left months to Obama’s presidency, regrettably its time for one of the most historic presidents in modern history  to step down .  Considering visiting the White House to be a part of history that you can tell your grandchildren about ? The White House is a private residence of the president of the United States, open to the public, and  is free of charge. It is still possible to register and schedule a visit 1600 Pennsylvania Ave before Barack Obama leaves office.  If interested ,one just  has to make a request with their local congressman of residence, most have a quick request form on their website .    It takes about 3 months to get approved, and I can confirm that it is a smooth process.  I submitted my request through  Charlie Rangel’s  (Harlem) website in April, then heard directly from the White House administration in May saying I was approved for dates I requested.  At that point they asked  detailed information (social security#, date of birth) of all the people in my party that will attend .  I guess that is where the real background  check begins.  We are all set for our dates in August to be at the white house! see : the white house visit
