The View from Here

Washingtonians and visitors are being treated to a special treat this summer – a most beautiful nighttime view of the District. The Washington Monument has extended its visiting hours during the rest of the summer. The monument is now open to visitors from 9 a.m. until 10 p.m. every day. The extended hours will remain in effect through Labor Day. The initiative is an effort to reinvigorate the national parks ahead of the park service’s centennial in 2016.
