Alexandria Things to Do: 121 reviews and 348 photos
George Washington was a member of the Freemasons. They built this memorial in his honor, dedicating it in 1932. Its 333-foot tower is the most prominent local landmark. It remains a regular meeting place for the Masons.
Inside, guided tours take visitors through some of the rooms, including the Memorial Hall, the Shrine, the Chapel, and more. The Memorial also has a concert hall, a small museum of George Washington's life, many historic photos and displays, plus many more attractions. And of course, the view from the top is tremendous. Allow at least two hours.
Address: 101 Callahan Drive, Alexandria, VA 22301
Directions: From I-95, take Route 241 north. Go right on Duke St (236), and follow it to Callahan. The memorial is on the left.
