At 555 feet, 5.5 inches, the Washington Monument is the tallest stone structure in the world. It is also the tallest structure of any kind in Washington, D.C., meaning that at some point during your visit — after the fifteenth or twentieth glimpse of it from a lot farther away than you’d have guessed you could see it — you’re bound to start wondering what the city looks like from the windows at its top.
