One of the cool things about living in Washington, D.C. is that there are so many historic monuments or commemorative installments. Everyone knows the big ones, Washington, Lincoln, FDR, Vietnam, etc. – but the National Capital Planning Commission just launched an interactive map with details about all of the memorials in the District – even the rediculously small ones (you havent visited the “Victims of Communism Memorial?).
Since I want to get to know DC better, I am going to plan on visiting every one of these memorials. I’ll keep portajohn updated on the progress, and fill in some fun details as I explore.
UPDATE: Track my visits to the monuments and memorials HERE.
