“So, what part of Washington is this monument modeled on?”
What could that be?! This is, apparently, the oldest joke in Washington DC, according to Lonely Planet.
Enough with the joke, the Washington Monument is the tallest building in the district with 555ft of height. When you look closely, you can notice the differences of stone, because it took two phases of construction to complete.
We spent one full day in Washington DC. Started with farmer’s market, #DCTravelTweetup, Smithsonian Air&Space museum, the Washington Monument and the White House. Washington DC has a lot, a LOT to see and do. Really charming city to explore. We end this day by walking around the Washington Monument and sun was about to set. Lovely view, don’t you think?
