Memorials in Washington DC are a great part of any visit to our nation’s capital. The Korean War Veterans Memorial is my favorite. Each is unique and shares an impact felt in our national history. I visited the Vietnam, World War II, and Korean memorials...More

We visited this memorial at night. It was just stunning! My grandchildren thought it was spooky with the lighted figures 'walking' across the grassy area. It was very realistic.

one of the best war memorials I visited. The statuary was so realistic, the soldiers looked alive in the night light and you felt their tension of being in battle. Faces of soldiers appear in the listing of names, only as you get close to...More

I haven't heard as much about this memorial as the others but it, to me, was the most interesting. The statues of the soldiers were in a green shrub setting and the wall with etchings of soldiers was stunning. Truly memorable!

The soldiers are walking through bushes that are meant to look like rice fields. They look very life like and it feels like you are there with them if you are walking in the same direction.

It wasn't even a war. It was a "police action." But, it was a war. This is a memorial that will give you the ghostly, god-awful scary feeling of being in a rice paddy about to die with each step. Vietnam is heartbreaking, WWII looks...More

Of all the War Memorials in Washington, DC., I find the Korean War Veterans Memorial to be the most memorable. The oversized 19 men representing a patrol (like oversized plastic green army men I played with as a kid) is striking. Definitely worth the visit.

There is so much to see for free, that you will not have to pay for much. Eating is not the cheapest anywhere, but you're in DC. They're spending your money faster than you can! Enjoy!

The memorials are free, if you want to go up into the Washington Monument I would find out what day you will be there and pay the small fee online and get them ASAP!!
