1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, DC is probably one of the most famous residential address in the world. It is where the most powerful man on earth lives, which is the White House.
For two days, visitors can get to walk outside the White House gardens and walk like the first family does. The official residence will be opening its grounds and gardens to guests on October 8 until October 9, according to Lonely Planet.
People will get the chance of walking in the Rose Garden and South Lawn like Jacqueline Kennedy, Michelle Obama and Nancy Reagan, but a few fortunate tourists can enter the first vegetable garden in White House Kitchen Garden, the news site added.
What's even more exciting is that it is free! The only catch is they need to have a ticket which is the difficult part. According to Lonely Planet, The National Parks Service will be giving away scheduled tickets at the Ellipse Visitor Pavilion near 15th and E Streets, Northwest. People who badly wants to experience this once in a lifetime opportunity will have to wake up early as it is a first-come, first-served basis. Lonely Planet said.
There will be a strict policy of one ticket per person, so anticipate long queues during that day. Also, expect that everyone will be wanting to stroll down the presidential house since this part is usually off limits on a normal White House tour.
People can spend their fall weekend by dropping by the White House and walk through the gardens. Just note these tour schedule that will start from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, Real Simple said.
Visiting the interior of the executive mansion is usually arranged beforehand and takes a bit of work. US citizens will have to apply for a through their state' Congress. Meanwhile, foreigners have to apply at the US consulate in their home country.
