A huge obelisk, a monument to George Washington, smack in the middle of the National Mall is the most imposing structure in the area. It would have been nice to visit inside and get to the top, unfortunately it was closed to tourists.

This is one of greatest monuments I've ever seen in my life. I would recommend to everyone who visits Washington DC to take some time and visit the Washington monument himself.

I loved this place 20 years ago and still love it today...surrounded by the American flags, you can see great views from the top to include the white house but cannot go up since the earthquake...it's still under repair but still worth the visit!

It is awesome to know that the Washington Monument is not only the World's largest stone structure, but it is also the tallest building in DC, and no building in DC is allowed to surpass it in height.
Can be used as a direction if you are getting lost in washington.
