I thought this sight really captured the essence of the soldiers who sacrificed all for our country. I was honored as a veteran to see how the Korean War Veterans were honored here. Freedom is not free.

There is so much to see for free, that you will not have to pay for much. Eating is not the cheapest anywhere, but you're in DC. They're spending your money faster than you can! Enjoy!

The memorials are free, if you want to go up into the Washington Monument I would find out what day you will be there and pay the small fee online and get them ASAP!!
