We found this to be the most impressive monument in DC. We visited it twice. Once at sunrise and once after dark. It impressed us both times.

The Memorial makes you remember what our country stands for - how & why - and gives you great proud in our military, specifically the Marines.

We missed our turn to head back to Virginia after visiting Arlington Cemetery and got on the wring road. All of a sudden on my left I saw the memorial! It took a few tries to loop back around & find the entrance (it really should be better marked), but am glad we did. IT IS HUGE. The sculpting is amazing, The detail! Made me proud of Marines every where. PLEASE try to find it, you won't be sorry. I think you could walk there from the cemetery, but we did not see signs anywhere.

PROS: free 1 hour parking; moving memorial; right by tulip gardens; situated in a hill which offers great background views of the Capitol, Washington monument and Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson memorial; right beside Arlington cemetery.The expansive lawn offers great spots for a picnic.

CONS: about a 30 minute stop.

Who doesn't love our beloved Marine Corp. This memorial is the statue of the Marines raising the flag at Iwo Jima. This is in Arlington and close to the cemetary, its not in DC so if you are taking th Metro to Arlington, VA you can visit the Marine Corp memorial, Arlington Cemetary and the Pentagon all within a few train stops. All worth it....
