Write Up:
On a chilly November morning, we all breezed through security, and entered the White House. It was a self-guided, follow-the-ropes-type tour, through a main hallway, the Blue, Green, and Red rooms, and the State dining room, among others.

Though I was told the tour would last an hour, we were finished in roughly 30 minutes. We all then headed to the White House Visitor's Center for an hour or so, where we were treated to photos, furniture pieces, examples of White House china, and other memoriabilia of White House history. We all then had brunch at a local cafe, and parted ways around 10:00 am.
