The Washington Monument experience is centered around the trip to the 500' level observation deck. It has the finest view of the Nation's Capital and surrounding areas into Virginia and Maryland.

The elevator ride back down slows to show some of the 193 Commemorative Stones set into the interior walls of the staircase within the monument.
