This nice park at the back to the Whitehouse, is a much closer location for seeing the Whitehouse as well as taking selfies with the Whitehouse as background. The the protester at the side of the park facing the Whitehouse seemed to have a perennial...More

Whether you agree or disagree with what the protesters and signs say, it is nice to live in a country in which people are free to camp outside the home of the highest office and have a right to voice their opinions.

Nice little park near the white household. Expect to see a nice collection or protesters on any given day.

I've always liked this 7 acre public park, but this time around, on a pleasant October afternoon, it was undergoing one of those (quite frequent) periods of disruption, with ugly wire screens blocking-off large chunks, and workmen noisily beavering away - 'hopefully their worthy efforts...More

This is a nice park behind the WHite House. There were a few protesters when we were there - not protests against the president, but against China. Statue of Lafayette

This is a nice park with a nice/ unique view of the White House, and definitely worth a visit when visiting the White House.

A great place to walk around. A lot of interesting buildings and such around. A great way to see the area is on foot. Parking your car could be a problem.

A great little park across from the White House. Beautiful historical statutes that are worth seeing if you are in the area. Near Blair-Lee House. This park has a small imprint, but has some nice benches with great shade trees.

You can admire the main facade of the White House, listen to demonstrators and even chat with them about major issues, and also reflect on the elegant statues of Frenchman Lafayette and Pole Kosciusko who supported our war of independence. It's also a great place...More
