From the back of the White House is a clear view of the Washington Monument, Jefferson Memorial, and the Ellipse.
The White House Visitor's Center occupies a building a few blocks away from the executive mansion at 1450 Pennsylvania Ave, NW.
Lafayette Square, which is across the street, has been the scene for numerous anti-War protests during the last several decades.
In the interest of security, the section of Pennsylvania Avenue immediately in front of the White House North gates has been closed to traffic since 2002.
The zero mile stone, the point from which all distances are measured in the United States, is found across the street from the South Lawn of the grounds.
The geographic point of the White House has a significant role in the overall design of the nation's capital.
