When we went to Washington the first memorial we wanted to see was the Washington Memrial. Unfortunately it was encased in metal scaffolding for repairs and we could not go inside. However, just standing in the presence of this beautiful, understated, marble monolith surrounded by 50 American flags was awe inspiring. Seeing it at night with the flags illuminated and the two red lights at top,looking like two red eyes overlooking the Natioanl Mall made it so spectacular. I can't wait to go back and see all the blocks of all the States with their inscription inside The Monument. An absolute must see on The National Mall. You can't help but see it wherever you are near The National Mall. Expect goosebumps and a very patriotic feeling!
