This was the first attraction we walked to because our son wanted to see it so badly, and it did not disappoint. I've always "known" it was tall, but seeing it in person was breathtaking. The flags surrounding it, the people walking around it looking dwarfed next to it. It was closed so we couldn't go up to the top, but just standing next to it, touching its smooth surface was incredible. Lots of great pictures and it just seemed to always be visible in the background no matter where you were.
The elevator is closed indefinitely, so you can only walk around the outside. It's worth the walk up the hill for the view, but without being able to go up it, it's really just a quick detour on your way to somewhere else on the National Mall. There are a number of benches around it, so if you grab something to eat from one of the food trucks around the mall you can eat it here, just don't plan on getting any shade.
There was a plastic net around the base now from the earthquake and closed. You can't get very close, but we took many pictures as we walked the Mall and passed this on the way to the WWII Memorial. It's cool to look at, but the other memorials have more meaning for me.
I mean how awesome is this monument. So much history here, offering spectacular views. Unfortunately when I went, the tower was closed so you won't be able to go all the way up, but the view from the bottom is just as great.
They won't let you back up after the earthquake of 2011. But this is the second highest point in DC, because the city restricts buildings over a certain hight to add to make the city more pretty. The highest is the national cathedral. But it is very pretty. If you want the best pictures I would wait till right before the sun goes down with that orange twilight glow. That makes the best pictures of the monument.
