8. The White House!

We kept the best one for last. THE WHITE HOUSE! Any season ... you just can’t go to Washington and not see the White House. It would be like going to Paris without seeing the Eiffel Tower. And don’t forget to walk all around it so you can see the front and the beautiful garden at the back! And maybe you’r gonna see the new president of the United State drinking a coffee outside! #inyourdream #whoknows
