One of my favorite D.C. afternoons was at the Washington Memorial. We walked around the amazing structure, then got lunch from a halal food truck and picnicked on the Mall. (I suggest bringing a lightweight blanket in your day pack for impromptu picnics between sites.) The elevator is currently being renovated so there was no opportunity to go up to the top. The bird's eye view would have been lovely, but I was fine to see everything on foot. The food trucks offer an excellent selection and reasonable prices. The vendors on foot selling drinks are the cheapest option for water and Gatorade.
The monument gets a bad rap lately with it being under construction a lot. Amazing piece of architecture best viewed after sunset. If you have the opportunity to travel inside to the top, please do so at least once in your lifetime. You will not regret the amazing views.
This place is interesting. Tour guides are filled with fun facts about the Washington Monument. Long wait to go up but breathtaking views. If you are visiting DC this is a must see!
By far the most visible sight in Washington, and a great navigating beacon. There is an elevator inside that goes to the top with supposedly great views. I say supposedly because the lines were far too long to actually go in. Overall, it is visually stunning from anywhere on the Mall (especially from the Lincoln Memorial) but you don't really need to interact with it to experience that. It also gets extraordinarily windy near the base: umbrellas beware.
Growing up in DC one of the exciting things I did was walk up all the steps of the Washington monument and look out the small window from the top. I don't believe you can walk up it anymore for obvious safety reasons. The wait is long to get to go up it but if you have the time it is worth doing. When I took a tour of Egypt it was exciting to see the originals that this monument was patterned after. Most people know it, but the building of the monument was stopped during the civil war and when they restarted its construction after the civil war stones from a different location causing a texture change in the rock that is clearly visible today.
