"Washington Monument" Crowds Tip by jennifermueller

Crowds, Washington D.C.: 5 reviews and 4 photos

  Monument at Sunset
by jennifermueller

People wait hours to go to the top of the Washington Monument.

Unique Suggestions: The good news is that in nice weather, there will always be frisbee and soccer players and joggers to watch while you wait. Arrive early to get your ticket.

Fun Alternatives: I understand the view from the top of the Old Post Office Pavillion (located at 12th and Pennsylvania Ave., NW, - Federal Triangle Metro Stop) is nearly as good without the wait.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
