An Iconic structure in DC


Member Rating 5 out of 5 by Parisbeba on October 19, 2011

Located on the National Mall is this tall obelisk, a monument dedicated to the first President of the United States.

Viewed from all directions around D.C., the Washington Monument truly is a magnificent sight. The obelisk reaches a height of 550 feet and is surrounded by 50 American flags.

I didn't get a chance to visit inside the monument as you need to arrive very early to snag one of the few entrance tickets given out.
