White House Fall Garden Tour 2013

A Fall Garden Tour With the First Lady? Insta-Yes, Please

This weekend, the White House is opening the gates to its gardens — and First Lady Michelle Obama would like to invite you, Instagrammer, on a little tour.

Earlier this week, the White House asked social-media-savvy citizens to apply for a chance to attend the Instagram Meetup in person, and even if you're not one of the lucky few invitees, you can still join Michelle and the White House on a rare public photo tour via Instagram.

On Sunday, Oct. 27, follow @WhiteHouse and @MichelleObama to see the Rose Garden, the South Lawn, and the Jacqueline Kennedy Garden up close.

The FLOTUS has already had a big year on social media, having unveiled a new Twitter handle in January and heading a winning Instagram account.

Fall in Washington DC is magical, and while the Sunday Instagram Meetup with Michelle Obama is exclusive to invitees, the Garden Tours are free and open to the public. Line up early (gates open at 7:30 a.m.) for a ticket from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. local time on Saturday and Sunday at the Ellipse Visitor Pavilion at 15th and E Streets.
