Washington Monument (Washington, D.C.)
The capital of the United States has the lion's share of the nation's historic landmarks, including the White House, the Lincoln Memorial, and much more. The Washington Monument, a pure white obelisk that recalls ancient Egyptian architecture, may be the most singular. It is the tallest structure in the city, and admission is free.
