A definite landmark to see. The original Washington monument, the architecture is impressive. At no charge, you can even walk to the top on the spiral staircase inside the monument.

Yes, you should be able to climb to the top. You should buy your ticket in advance to ensure you can climb. If you have a group, know that they limit the number. There is no open air platform - you just can look out 4 large... More
