The photo ops here at sunrise/sunset or on a day that is foggy or snowy might be some of the best in DC. An impressive monument that tells the story of those who fought in the war in a way that is different than the...More

This is a memorial that I didn't know existed in D.C. and it was an amazing experience. . This is a very powerful memorial that was beautifully designed to reflect the struggles of those who participated in the Korean War.

It was a moving memorial as they have statues in action and you can see the intense face on the soldiers face.

You will not see a more impressive Memorial than this. You can almost see the soldiers moving. Their heightened expressions of alertness are amazing.

There is so much to see for free, that you will not have to pay for much. Eating is not the cheapest anywhere, but you're in DC. They're spending your money faster than you can! Enjoy!
