The Korean War memorial is very well done, the soldier statues look ethereal. I was shocked by the statistics as I do not know much about the Korean War.

This was a first visit for us. Seeing the soldiers in the bushes like that and all the engraved faces on the walls was really amazing and what great way to honor our soldiers!

A wonderful tribute to those who fought in America's "forgotten war." So close to all the monuments and memorials on the stretch between the Washington and Lincoln, but undervalued and undervisited. Add it to your itinerary.

As it turned out, the fact that it was a cold day helped to enhance my viewing of this memorial. All of the statues were "dressed" as if it was cold and I got a sense of their environment. Additionally, I placed my phone in...More

The etchings on the Memorial are absolutely gorgeous and need to be seen from multiple angles to see them all. Very worthwhile to walk through

You would think the soldiers were real. Beautiful right before sunrise. We enjoyed the walk more at this time of day than later in the afternoon.

This monument was very well done. There is a lot to see and take in - it is a great tribute. It us very educational without a lot of narrative. I was not aware of the scale or universal involvement until today.

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!!
