Library
“ Not sure why it is being labeled as a library, but getting into the White House is only accessible through tours, which can be registered for online. However, if visitors would like to see the president’s residence from the outside, then it’s an easy walk down Pennsylvania Avenue NW between 15th St. NW and 17th St. NW. There, parties can take pictures with the White House in the backdrop and scream obscenities at, or praises for, Trump through the fence! ”

Cemetery
“This place is beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time. It is the burial place of John F. Kennedy, home of the mesmerizing patrol at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and the historic home of Robert E. Lee that was seized by The Union as their burial place for soldiers during the Civil War after Robert E. Lee fled it. The placement of soldier's graves ensured he could not return and use the land as he once did and thus began the Arlington National Cemetery. ”
