Visiting the memorials at night is a special experience and often less crowded.
Iconic outdoor memorial honoring the 16 million Americans who served during World War II.
A popular memorial, the World War II Memorial was dedicated in 2004 to the 400,000-plus Americans who died during the war. A circle of 56 pilings (representing the then 56 U.S. states and territories) looks over the Rainbow Pool. At night, with lights shining, this memorial can be quite ethereal.
This is our favorite spot to watch the sunset, you’ve got a view in front of you and behind with the Washington monument, and Ab Lincoln! We recommend doing a night bicycle ride around the monuments and end at the Jefferson Memorial. It’s the best during the cherry blossom season. :)
Bike or walk from Lincoln, vietnam memorial, white house, washington monument, many museums, capitol, back the other side on independence Avenue to Holocaust Museum and Jefferson.
Beautiful, serene monument that recognizes all U.S. States and territories that had soldiers that fought in the war.
The WWII Memorial is gorgeous at night when everything is lit up. I love to take an after-dinner walk from the Lincoln Memorial to the WWII Memorial, and then back home.
The World War II Memorial is a memorial of national significance dedicated to Americans who served in the armed forces and as civilians during World War II.

“The memorial itself is based on a line from Dr. King's famous "I Have a Dream” speech, which was delivered from the nearby steps of the Lincoln Memorial during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom in 1963: "With this faith, we will be able to hew out of a mountain of despair, a stone of hope." The memorial depicts Dr. King as the “stone of hope” and the two pieces of granite placed near him as the “mountain of despair."”

“I occasionally go here at night, sit on the steps, and just observe the reflection pool along with the Washington Monument in the night sky. I honestly think the experience is better at night. There’s usually college aged adults and small groups of tourists around even at 1am. ”
