Washington Monument Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

The capital's most conspicuous landmark, and the world's tallest freestanding stone structure, this austere white marble obelisk rises from a knoll in the middle of the Mall. Though it took nearly four decades to complete, the monument, ringed by US flags, now stands both as a commanding memorial to the man who was "first in the hearts of his countrymen," and as an indelible symbol of the city that bears his name.
