  The Washington Monument
by csordila

A trip to Washington D.C. wouldn’t be complete without a stop at The Washington Monument.
This landmark attraction stands out as one of the most prominent features of the D.C. landscape. When completed in 1884, the monument was the tallest man made structure in the world. A visit to the capital is all about honoring the history that has taken place throughout the country; what better way to do that than to spend time exploring an attraction that’s dedicated to the very first president?
