  • When the fire is lit this is my favorite memorial to visit. The American Veterans Disabled memorial isn’t a big tourist draw but is well worth your time and it’s not more than a block from the Botanical garden.
  • Beautiful, moving, under-visited memorial. Love the quotes and the ever burning flame. Right across from Bartholdi park, which is part of the US Botanic Gardens.
  • Good place to venerate the soldiers who died for nothing
  • A beautiful tribute to disabled veterans.
  • Very cool. Off the beaten path.

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.
