With the Washington Monument being closed for repairs, the Tower provides the best view of DC. It is not advertised a lot, so the lines are not bad. A must see while in DC.

If you can't get into the Washington Monument because it's closed for renovations (like now) or too busy, the Old Post Office Clock Tower is a great alternative. It's operated by the National Park Service and it's free! You'll get a great view of everything...More
