- Washington MonumentFeb 28, 2014
You can't miss the Washington Monument if you visit Washington, DC. It is by law the tallest structure in DC. If you stay in our rental property you will be able to see it from living room and master bed room, during 4th of July you can watch fire works from the unit without going outside. Located in Washington mall between Capitol Hill and Lincoln Memorial and World War II Memorial.

The Washington Monument stands about halfway between the Lincoln Memorial and Congress. There is an elevator to the top and gets great view of Washington DC. No disability parking in this area of the Monument.

This symbol of the nation's capital needs no introduction. It's suffered during the recent earthquake and has been surrounded in innovative scaffolding that was alit at night but is now being removed as repairs are finishing. Check the website to see when visits resume. Until then still worth strolling about the surrounding grounds.

The Washington Monument is an obelisk dedicated to America's first president, George Washington. When it was built, it was one of the tallest man made structures in the world. When open, you can climb to the top and look out over the nation's capital.

Iconic monument in the heart of the national mall. Still under repairs from the earthquake so you can't go to the top, but it is still pretty cool

Although it's currently closed for repairs, visiting this monument even from a distance is worth it. It is a national icon - can't miss it on a trip to DC.

Washington's last erection has a crack in it - talk about symbolism, right? Nevertheless, the obelisk continues to draw tourists, even though the elevator that'll take you to its tip, is temporarily out of service. Crack or no crack, an icon is an icon, suppose.

Despite not having climbed to the top in over a decade, I still have fond memories of both the monument and the view from the top. Compared to a lot of other memorials on the Mall, the Monument is simple, clean, a what-you-see-is-what-you-get structure. But it really commands the area, and is worth a stop - even if you just circle its base - on your way to the Lincoln Memorial.

The Washington Monument symbolizes the might and political power of Washington, DC. It's nice to view but maybe from far away as opposed to being up close.Recommended for:Art & Design Lovers

A very simple, yet iconic monument, this structure can be seen from all along the Mall. It looks beautiful in all kinds of light, but I recommend getting a photo from in front of the Lincoln Memorial at the foot of the Reflecting Pool.
