Wow, we couldn't get tickets to go up in the Washington monument. Lucky for us this hidden gem was so worth it. Beautiful view.

Fantastic view of the city. Knowledgeable, friendly guides throughout. Self paced. Opens earlier than most museums, landmarks.

I was so excited to hear that the Old Post Office Tower was reopened. I'd wanted to go up for a long time. I was disappointed with the experience when I did go up. The views are indeed wonderful but taking photos is hard. First,...More
