The home of every U.S. president since John Adams in 1801, the White House is America's most famous homestead. A number of rooms are available to tour, but the State Floor, which includes the East Room as well as the Green, Blue and Red rooms are of special note. President Bill Clinton's daughter, Chelsea, was said to have hosted pizza parties in the State Dining Room, while President Theodore Roosevelt's children are said to have roller-skated in the East Room.

If you've never been to DC before, you might want to time your visit to the cherry blossoms. The Tidal Basin's cherry blossom trees (gifted to DC from Toyko) bloom into cotton candy-colored tufts every year as March turns into April, and they attract hordes of visitors. You can enjoy the blossoms by walking along the Tidal Basin, paddle boating inside the basin or taking a cruise. But there are also other events associated with the festival, including a 10K, fireworks, concerts and more.
