    If you want to get a good view of the White House start here. You are not particularly close to the building itself but the Ellipse offers clear views of the building.

    This is where you can get pictures of the White House from the southern end. There is no disability parking and a long walk very little shade.

    The Ellipse is a circular path that surrounds The White House and offices nearby. It's a great place to walk around and get some nice views and photos of The White House.

    If you want to view the White House from the southern side the ellipse is the place to do it. Some great photo opportunities to be had.

    Find a more majestic view, no matter who's living in it. There is a presence about the White House that you only feel when you're there and a few other key places around the world. You can't help but hope that the President or his family might just decide to wander out while you're watching.
