White House Garden Tours


In 1972, First Lady Pat Nixon decided to open up the White House gardens for tours twice a year, and that tradition continues today.

Spring Garden Tours dates include April 13-14, 2019; find all the details here.

The tours feature the South Lawn of the White House as well as the Jacqueline Kennedy Garden, the Rose Garden, and the White House Kitchen Garden. The White House Kitchen Garden is the first lady’s personal vegetable gardens and were the first vegetable patches planted at the White House since Eleanor Roosevelt tended to the Victory Garden in the 1940s.
