Hoover the Chicken at The Washington Monument

One of my cousin, Hoover’s favourite places in Washington is the Washington Monument.

This monument was made in honour of George Washington, the first president of the United States.

Hoover wanted to climb the monument and check the view from the top but Mom said she didn’t want to climb 897 steps in the 100 degree heat. We later found out that visitors can also take an elevator.

There are so many interesting things to know about the Washington Monument. Click the link and you can get some really cool facts.

Just remember, whether you walk, take the elevator or fly, you do need to order timed tickets in advance.

On this visit, Hoover and I admired the monument from below but there is always next time….
