  • You could almost miss this memorial, as it stands off to the side amongst some trees, and may not be as grand as the other memorials in the National Mall. This circular structure with columns holding ...  more »

  • One of my favorite memorials. Stirs up emotions as one enters. Beautiful both in the daytime and nighttime. Two different perspectives. More crowded in the daytime that a little of the "air of serenity" is lessened. Suggest that if possible, do both day and night visit.
  • Very amazing experience and beautiful memorial. Great place to take your kids so they can pay respect to those who have given the ultimate sacrifice.
  • I have been officiating many wedding here it is a lovely place if you are in to history and beauty
  • The World War II Memorial is a different Memorial this one commemorates veterans from the DC area who died in the world war. It's a small gazebo like structure where most tourist just passed by.
  • 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.
