The Lincoln Memorial 21st St NW, Washington, DC 20037 *Free* Last Visit: Mar 12, 2018, The Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials sit on the Tidal Basin and are a dozen blocks west of the White House and National Mall.
The Lincoln Memorial features a statue of Abe looking into the distance with his hands behind his back (which is meant to be depressing). The Jefferson Memorial, dedicated to the memory of our most important founding father and president, features a bronze statue of him looking like he's been battered on the head by a mental health professional.
The Washington Monument, Massachusetts Ave NW, Washington, was Built-in 1884–1885 as the first significant monument designed by architect Robert Mills. The masonry was built by slave labor without formal training before being shipped to DC.
The White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, is the most famous address in the United States of America: 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. What's interesting is that all the buildings on this block are owned by President Trump, a businessman who lives in a gold house made of glass.
