See all the monuments you'd like (among the most visited are the Washington Monument, Jefferson Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial, Iwo Jima Memorial, and Vietnam Veterans Memorial) in one fell swoop. You can always return for in-depth visits. All are most evocative just before, during, and after sunset. Flag down a cab and ask the driver if he or she will take you around for a couple of hours. If there isn't instant agreement, say thanks anyway and flag another.
