"Easter Egg Roll" White House Tip by sryan1123

White House, Washington D.C.: 139 reviews and 226 photos

This is worth it.

Warning - The tickets to the annual White House Easter Egg Roll are free, but you should be willing to camp out to get them. It sounds silly, I know.

The event was on a Monday this year and tickets were distributed on the previous Saturday. We camped out Friday night to be awakened at 3:00 am (very early for me) to be given tickets to get tickets at 7:00 am (still early...) on Saturday. Bring a tent and sleeping bag. Not much is open in downtown DC, so bring snacks. Alcohol is tolerated. That's all I'll say.

BIG TIP/WARNING: Make sure you know where the protestors are and what they are doing. There are always groups downtown standing on their soap box. Protestors are normal in this area. This year was gay marriage issue. The Rainbow Alliance gave a silent protest, wearing leis. This wasn't the problem. The problem was the group of protestors screaming profanities and offensive and sexually explicit insults at passing children in the vicinity of the White House.
