Washington DC looks spectacular when lit up at night, so make the most of your time in the city by going on an evening tour on an open-air trolley. Going on an organized tour saves time working out local public transport, and means you can learn along the way through guide commentary. Tick off lots of top landmarks such as the Lincoln Memorial, the White House, the Washington Memorial, and more.

I love that this is more than just signatures, it lists the homes and occupations of each signer as well. Our nine year old and 2 six year olds were amazed that not just politicians helped found our country, I think they may want to give it a go. Quick stop but glad we did. The only reason not a full 5, the water is kind of gross. I get that in summer especially you get algae and what not, but the kids could not stop asking why people make it so yucky. Not sure how hard it is to maintain, but hoping it’s not like this all the time.

I didn’t know this existed. I saw it on TripAdvisor as I was walking in the area. It’s a cool memorial to some very brave men.

We were just strolling around the area of the Reflecting Pool and, basically, just stumbled upon this Memorial. To access the Memorial, you cross a small wooden bridge onto an island. There are 56 stone blocks, each with a facsimile of the signer's actual signature. Really neat!!

We had just left the Albert Einstein Memorial and were headed back toward the National Mall to see more museums. We saw a little lake with weeping willow tree, my wife and I love them, and walked over to take some pictures. There was a stand to buy drinks/food and we grabbed some waters and continued on. We came across a little bridge with some inscriptions on it. It was a memorial for the signers of the Declaration of Independence. We crossed the bridge and there is a small wall of blocks each with a signers name engraved in it. It was pretty cool to stumble upon. It is between the Vietnam War and World War II Memorials and worth a look. The greenery around the lake and the views of the Washington Monument towering over the lake are amazing.

We stumbled upon this by accident while walking around seeing the sights! This was so nice and in a beautiful setting on the water. Very good!
