If the White House is the most fascinating home in the country, the area that surrounds 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is the most fascinating neighborhood.

The tour centers around the history of the presidential mansion, but you'll also meet Stephen Decatur - a naval legend slain in a fateful duel. Then there's Dolley Madison, who saved George Washington's portrait from British torches. You'll learn the location of the White House bowling alley, see where Winston Churchill stayed after Eleanor Roosevelt kicked him out of the White House, visit a haunted mansion and so much more!
