The view of Washington DC at night from the Iwo Jima Memorial is amazing. Many times, when you see night photos and post cards from Washington DC, it is from this vantage point.
Visible from the car on Rt 50 on your way to DC, but stop here to enjoy the monument, open space, and great views of DC.
Famous Statue of Marines raising the American Flag on Iwo Jima during WW2. Marine Parades during the summer.
Spectacular Memorial with stunning views of the monuments. Walk over to the Netherlands Carillon for the best views of the monuments.
