The White House will offer its annual Gardens & Grounds Tours this April 18th and 19th. Good news for locals: tickets for the tours will be available only in person, on a first-come, first-serve basis. (Tickets to the annual White House Easter Egg Roll were only offered on the internet.) The Gardens & Grounds Tours will include the Jacqueline Kennedy Garden, the Rose Garden, the Children's Garden, and the White House South Lawn. Michelle Obama's new White House Kitchen Garden will be visible from the tour route. More info on the tours and getting tickets below the jump...
