  • I've been to DC many times and this was the first time I noticed this memorial. The structure is very nice and the message it delivers is nice too. Maybe it is meant for locals that is why the locatio...  more »
  • 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 »

  • 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.
  • Honouring those who lost their lives in World War II, this monument reflect the sacrifices the Allied and American soldiers made during the war. Its architecture is designed in a smart and attractive way.
  • Very cool memorial, but in January they have the fountains turned off, which looses some of the esthetics. Would recommend visiting in the spring/summer when the memorial has the fountains running!
  • I don't see much future for the Americans ... it's a decayed country. And they have their racial problem, and the problem of social inequalities ... my feelings against Americanism are feelings of hatred and deep repugnance ... everything about the behaviour of American society reveals that it's half Judaised, and the other half negrified. How can one expect a State like that to hold together?” ― Adolf Hitler, Hitler's Secret Conversations, 1941-1944
  • Great memorial, beautiful sight, and memory of the soldiers who fought for our country, nobody should give this a 1 star to not disrespect the soldiers who gave their lives to this land of the free. Best regards, Jacob Central Intelligence Agency --

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.
