White House Garden Tours

Today is a busy day in Washington, D.C. The city is filled with people attending or protesting the Inauguration of the 45th President. And The White House will have new residents today.

But I hope the garden tour tradition will continue. The fall and spring White House Garden Tours have been a tradition since 1972 when the First Lady Pat Nixon opened the gardens to the public. The gardens are free and open to the public two weekends each year. However, tickets are required and may be picked up the same day. I suggest getting to the White House as early as possible to pick up your tickets.

During the tour, visitors can see the Jacqueline Kennedy Garden, Rose Garden and South Lawn of the White House. Here are some of my favorite pictures from the most recent fall tour I took:
