DC War Memorial
Tucked into a grove of trees, the World War I Memorial is a quiet place to escape the din of traffic and tourists who pack Washington, DC’s National Mall. Erected in 1931, the modest marble structure, shaped like an ancient Greek temple, honors the 499 DC citizens who lost their lives in “the War to End All Wars.” Find shade beneath the memorial’s domed roof and take in the bucolic stretch of West Potomac Park around you -- chances are you’ll have this moment all to yourself.
