Honoring George Washington, the Washington Monument is the most prominent structure in D.C. The obelisk stands 555-feet tall and was built in 1884. Vising the monument is free but requires a timed ticket which can be picked up on a first come, first served basis. It is highly recommended that you reserve a ticket online at the National Park Service ticket website. There is a service charge but well-worth it, as tickets are often reserved months in advance.

Across the way is the Lincoln Memorial.
