    Difficult to find. The signatures of people I've never heard off cut into rock. Not very exciting. Probably why we were the only people there. Don't bother while in DC, there's plenty of better option...  more »

    This is one of my favorite places in DC. It is quiet and off the beaten path, yet peaceful and reflective

    This memorial commemorates a very important moment of the US history. However, it's not very impressive from an architectural point of view and can be skipped if you're not into history.

    This is a semi hidden garden and Monument to the original signers of the Declaration of Independence. The garden itself is beautiful. There is a very pretty pond and a nice view of the Washington Monument which reflects then the it's waters. The garden landscape Dennis meticulous. The monument to the 56 signers is a little small and could be kept up a little better though.

    A simple memorial with glorious views of the National Mall. The 56 Signers is an easily and often missed memorial as its a bit off the beaten track on the north side of the mall between the WWII memorial and Vietnam War memorial. It consists of a small island with engraved marble slabs, one for each of the 56 signers of our Declaration of Independence. A true act of treason in its time, each signatory thereafter committed their fortunes and lives to the endeavor of the colonies freedom from England. I've never once visited and had other people around. A great place to relax and take some nice pictures.

Where to stay in Washington DC

Most visitors to Washington, D.C., end up in the East End, the old downtown district containing most of the city's major cultural attractions. For a more authentic Washingtonian experience, consider staying at a smaller hotel just a little north or east of this busy area. Neighborhoods outside downtown offer less expensive accommodations and affordable street parking, as well as opportunities to meet more locals and fewer tourists. Alternatively, try a hotel in Georgetown, packed with high-end shops and Colonial architecture.
