This Memorial of an almost forgotten war was incredible. Dozens of statues of soldiers walking through grasses and water. There was also a beautiful wall with hundreds of etchings, even the military dog. Very moving.

There is so much to see for free, that you will not have to pay for much. Eating is not the cheapest anywhere, but you're in DC. They're spending your money faster than you can! Enjoy!

The memorials are free, if you want to go up into the Washington Monument I would find out what day you will be there and pay the small fee online and get them ASAP!!
