Washington DC's Top National Monuments

By Viator, April 2016

4.5 2741 Reviews | Add your review

Washington DC has its fair share of things to do, but for history buffs and monument fanatics, DC is a playground of elephantine proportions. From the White House and Capitol Hill to the Smithsonian and everything in between, DC has a huge list of impressive sights to see.

That being said, a tour is recommended to help orient yourself and to point out the hidden gems, the background notes about the Civil War to explain what 1860s Washington looked like. Get a good overview of Washington DC with a guided sightseeing tour of the 'must-sees' like the White House, the Capitol Building, the Smithsonian and the Washington Monument. Other top historic sites include the Lincoln and Vietnam memorials and Lafayette Square, while the Iwo Jima Marine Corps Memorial offers a somber yet inspiring look at history and postcard views of DC.
