“A Nation Honors its Founding Father”

The Washington Monument is one of the country's most recognizable structures, a white-colored obelisk at the west end of the National Mall. An elevator takes visitors to the top to see a spectacular view of Washington, DC including unique perspectives of the Lincoln Memorial, the White House, the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, and the Capitol Building.

Construction of the Washington Monument began in 1848. However, the memorial was not completed until 1884, due to lack of funds during the Civil War. Beginning in July 1848 the Washington National Monument Society invited states, cities and patriotic societies to contribute memorial stones to commemorate George Washington. The 192 memorial stones adorn the interior walls of the monument.

Here's where you'll find the best views of Washington D.C. If you reserve your ticket online it's cheaper. I actually walked up this beast, and it was exhausting. There is an elevator though. This past year the monument underwent renovations because of cracks. Now it's reopened and fully operational.
