My wife and I visited the Korean War Memorial during a walking tour of the National Mall, Monuments and Memorials. This beautiful memorial is a must see in DC. If you have time, visit it during the day and at night as the lighting changes the appearance of the memorial after dark. This memorial is free and is easily accessed... More
