Visiting Washington

Are you planning a visit to Washington, D.C.? Whether you’re coming on a short business trip, or an extended family vacation, my office can help you make arrangements for some of the more popular Federal attractions in our Nation’s Capital.

My office is happy to assist you in setting up tours to the following sites:
  • U.S. Capitol
  • Library of Congress
  • White House

These tours are an excellent way to see all that the nation’s capital has to offer and all of these tours are of no charge to you. All tickets are provided to my constituents on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to the large number of visitors, please request them as early as possible in order to maximize your chances.

To submit a request for a tour please fill out the Tour Request Form.
If you are not interested in a tour, but would like to stop by my office while in Washington, that’s great too.  If I am in the office and not at a committee hearing or voting on the House floor, I’d love to take a picture with you and your family, friends, or group.  My staff can also give you gallery passes to sit in the House gallery and watch what’s going on on the floor of the House of Representatives. Directions to my Washington office can be found here.
PLEASE NOTE: Requests should be submitted 4-6 weeks in advance due to limited tour availability.
Public Tours
In addition to the guided Congressional tours, there are number of free public tours at many monuments, museums, and historical sites all around Washington, D.C. Please note that some attractions are unable to fulfill requests even if they are made with considerable lead time. This is especially true from March to September. Following, you will find information and links to some of these sites.
