Washington Monument, Washington D. C. Reviews

  • Beautiful lit up at night with the flags surrounding it flapping in the breeze. The monument is currently closed to visitors for repairs, so we couldn't go up (Oct. 18). The Washington monument is very impressive though from the outside. Just beware, in Washington DC all the monuments seem really close together, but they are not. We ended up walking almost 10 miles. Bring good walking shoes!

  • The Washington Monument is an enormous 555 feet tall obelisk located in the middle of The Mall in Washington D.C. To the west you have the Lincoln Memorial and the Reflection Pool, to the east the U.S. Capital Building and directly north, you'll find the White House. You can visit the Washington Monument, climb to the top and enjoy views of the surrounding Smithsonian Museums, the national monuments and memorials that line The Mall. You can also see the greater D.C. area beyond The Mall. Alternatively, you can simply enjoy seeing the Washington monument from pretty much everywhere in this area of the city. If you want to take photos of the Washington Monument, best to position yourself in the east side in the morning so that the sun is at your back. Similarly, photos from the west side of the monument are better in the afternoon. If you simply want to take pictures from famous locations, aim for the steps of Lincoln Memorial. From here you can see the Washington Monument as well as the full reflection of this landmark in the Reflection Pool. This is neat spot to find and photograph to take, even when shooting conditions are not ideal. Note: For an interesting bit of history, when close to the Washington Monument, check out the change in colour in the monument about a third of the way up. This was due to a stoppage in construction in 1854 when government ran out of funds for the project. Continuation of the monument didn't restart until 1877 and made use of materials of a slightly different shade.

  • sad but this place is temporary closed till 2019. to honor the first president of USA, the monument was built, and it is world tallest stone structure too. few places in dc are known to everyone like capitol building- Lincoln memorial-white house and this Washington monument. this is in same national mall zone, in one straight line with capitol and Lincoln memorial. its walking distance from the capitol. while coming to dc, you can see this monument from miles away. the best pic one can get is from Lincoln memorial where the reflection of monument you can see in the reflective pool. that is an awesome view, especially at sunset time. night view of this monument is amazing.

  • The area was beautiful and there was a lot of food options, and water bottle kiosks along the way. The grass was kept well and the views were phenomenal. All of the signs around were helpful in finding our way to each land mark. Looking forward to our next chance to check out the city and the free national museums!

  • Washington Monument is the tallest building in Washington DC. Stood at 169 metres. This is the most recognizable monument in Washington DC as it always appeared in TV shows. There are regulation which mentioned that none any other building should build higher than Washington Monument in DC(District of Columbia). It took two phases of construction to complete due to financial issue. As the builder unable to find the same quarry stone used in the initial construction the monument has different hues of the stone on the bottom third.
