  • The DC War Memorial is tucked into the trees a bit but is a beautiful sight on the National Mall tour.

  • Coming to this place reminds you the unity and power of coming together and fighting for one reason and purpose. The name of all states being architectured on the walls give an equal pride to citizens fron all states. The messages are very inspiring. One request that I may have is from people to not climb over the walls for taking photos. These are the symbol of integrity, devotion and sacrifice for one goal: freedom and we must respect it. I forgot to say, I love the fountain too.
  • This memorial was long overdue and it came out wonderful. It's my favorite in DC. I see ceremonies take place there and it make you feel proud of our country. It's worth the visit from anywhere.
  • Absolutely gorgeous open area and fountain/memorial. Great spot for photos.
  • Nice memorial to our history. Great views looking around
  • The DC War Memorial is definitely not on tourist radars, but that makes us locals love it! It's tucked away just off the path walking from the Washington Monument to the Lincoln Memorial on the left side. It looks like a giant, marble gazebo and most Saturdays you'll see locals taking wedding photos or even conducting wedding ceremonies there. If a wedding is not happening, it's my favorite place to sit and read and journal. It feels like a hidden gem and always a much needed escape from the more major tourist areas like the Lincoln Memorial.
