"Second best view in DC" Old Post Office Building - Pavilion Tip by mht_in_la

  US Capitol viewed from old Post Office
by mht_in_la

Many of DC's major attractions are getting harder to get into due to security concerns, such as White House, Washington Monument, US Capitol, etc. Why not visit the old Post Office Tower and get a great view instead? The view from the old Post Office Tower is considered the second best in DC, only next to that of Washington Monument. Also, the security at the tower seemed to be a lot more relaxed than other government buildings. The photo shows US Capitol in the end of Pennsylvania Ave.
