Tips for Attending the White House Easter Egg Roll

The easiest way to get to the White House is by taking the Metro. The closest Metrorail stations to the White House are Federal Triangle (blue and orange lines), Metro Center (blue, orange, and red lines) and McPherson Square (blue and orange lines).

If you do decide to drive, you can find nearby publicly available parking lots and garages here.

Be prepared to wait in long lines when you get there. Your ticket will say what time the line opens up for your group. You may want to get there earlier to get a better place in line.
