Hiking through DC you can hit museums and memorials. This memorial is stunning. We got here mid-day, it was crowded, but it didn't take away from just how special it is. There is so much to do- stop by this memorial.

The place is large and reflects immediately the 2 fronts at the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Must visit this place.

Saw the memorial whilst on a guided bus tour of Washington. Makes you realise the volume of lives lost in this war alone. A touching memorial to the military men and women who didn't return.

This is an amazing monument to visit day or night. I personally like it at night when it is lit up. It is an absolute must see if you are in DC.

Wife and I took in the sights of the National Mall. The WWII memorial was particularly moving. To look at the stars and read the plaques really makes one stop and appreciate the freedoms we have. Thanks you WWII Veterans!!

I believe there is, when i visited there was a lot of visitors in wheel chairs, and good disabled access to the memorial. The veterans in question had come by coach, but i am sure there was car parking there as well.
