Visible from the car on Rt 50 on your way to DC, but stop here to enjoy the monument, open space, and great views of DC.
Famous Statue of Marines raising the American Flag on Iwo Jima during WW2. Marine Parades during the summer.
The view of Washington DC at night from the Iwo Jima Memorial is amazing. Many times, when you see night photos and post cards from Washington DC, it is from this vantage point.
Spectacular Memorial with stunning views of the monuments. Walk over to the Netherlands Carillon for the best views of the monuments.

“This free memorial to the victims of the 9-11 attack on the Pentagon is a very special place. The memorial itself is thoughtfully planned with special meaning built in to its design. This is my favorite place in D.C. for reflection and peace and quiet when needed. Recommend visiting at dusk. ”

“Great local coffeeshop and bakery-- big selection of homemade pastries (try the home made pop tarts or cinnamon rolls). Almost always has 2 gluten-free options (blueberry muffin and scone- pick the scone).”
