The White House Tour
On the second day of their holidays in Washington, D.C, Steve and his family toured the White House, the home of the President of the United States.
The White House is made of sandstone. It is painted white to make it look like marble. Most pictures show the building from the north side, where it seems to be a two-storey structure. The White House, however, really has four storeys.
The most famous room is the East Room. Important people from all over the world have been in this room. But the visitors have never used it for entertaining.
The President and the President's family spend most of their time in private rooms on the third floor.
There are offices, a sitting room, a library and a living space on the third floor, too.
The building has changed much over the years. A dentist's office, a doctor's office, a swimming pool, a gym and even a movie theatre have been added lately.
