A Walk Through History

Gathered around the Washington Memorial, an obelisk about 170 meters high, you’ll find all important memorials. You can buy a ticket to get to the top of the memorial by elevator or stairs. Unfortunately, they were all sold out when I got there. I guess you have to make ticket reservations at least one day in advance. To get your private portion of American history take a five to six kilometers walk. You’ll come by the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, a wall with all names of soldiers fallen or missed in action during the Vietnam war. Furthermore, you can’t miss the World War II Memorial which is located over the street from the Washington Memorial. Catch a pretty nice view from the Lincoln Memorial to the Capitol, Washington Memorial and reflecting pool right in front of the memorial. On the way to the Jefferson Memorial you’ll see the Korean War Veterans Memorial. I would definitely recommend to take pictures of the memorials at night. They look totally impressive.
