We love our nation's capitol! The Washington Monument is one of the first things you see coming into DC and I love it. Definitely go see and capture a moment of history!

Something to see. If you want to go up in the monument plan on getting there a 1 1/2 hours early we was there about 50 minutes and didn't make it.

I guess, unless you spend extra money to do the tour of the monument itself, you only get to see it from quite a distance. Looks huge, seems great, just never got that up close and personal.

Free to ride to the top, but you need a ticket they only give out so many per day. Very helpful park rangers and the view is top notch. Perfect picture opportunity. Beautiful monument

My wife and I visited the monument at night which we both agreed was a great idea. Cooler weather and less crowds made it much more enjoyable. Only downside was the elevator to the top is not open at night. Also had an impressive view...More

It’s a walk to get to but it’s very pretty. DC is a lot of walking with hard parking we only found one parking deck and the side roads to park on were full. It’s a good trip if you have a lot of patience...More

Thankfully I came at the right time, when they had already completed the renovations. This place is amazing and the sight towards the US Capitol is breathtaking. One suggestion...rent a scooter because it’s a lot of walking. Scooters (or bicycles) for rent help you get...More

We attempted to go up the monument but all the tickets were taken for the whole day. You have to arrive very early in the morning to secure a ticket. We did walk around the base and enjoy the views from there!

The area is massive. It does have a little museum about the monument and grounds. Recommend to check website for hours. Make sure to where your walking shoes because the park that it is attached to is a beautiful walk but also within walking distance...More
