The White House Area and Foggy Bottom

view-mapView Map

Foggy Bottom includes some of D.C.'s most iconic attractions, the top being the White House. The home of every U.S. president but George Washington, the 132-room mansion is as impressive in real life as it is on television. It may be tough to decide what to see first of the monuments and parkland of the National Mall, Tidal Basin, and some of Washington's better, if smaller, museums. Adding to the variety, you'll find the Kennedy Center, the infamous Watergate complex, and George Washington University's campus. Peppered among the government buildings, museums, monuments, and university buildings are also some of D.C.'s oldest houses, revealing the area's surprisingly residential character.
