Washington DC's monuments and memorials on the National Mall are spectacular in the evening, and even more so during a full moon. Since the July 27 full moon falls on a Friday it's the perfect time for an evening walk with familiar and new friends from our “Washington, DC History & Culture” group.Our walk will start and end at the National World War II Memorial and cover approximately 3 miles past Washington DC's most famous monuments and memorials.Meet New People: We’ll have a good-sized group and it’s hard to remember people’s names. Therefore, we’ll bring blank name tags and pens and each person can write their name and their “dream” vacation - example: “Michele - Hawaii” & “Robert - Japan.” During our walk we can then discuss our past and future travels.Schedule:Meeting Time/Socializing = 6:45-7:00 pmDeparture = 7:00 pm (sharp)Moonrise = 8:26 pmSunset = 8:37 pmEnding Time = 9:30 pm (approximate)Itinerary:National World War II Memorial (starting point)The Tidal BasinJefferson Memorial (10-minute photo/restroom break)Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial (10-minute photo/restroom break)Martin Luther King, Jr. MemorialKorean War Veterans MemorialLincoln Memorial (10-minute photo/restroom break)Vietnam Veterans MemorialNational World War II Memorial (ending point)__________________________________________________Registration: Free - this event is open to the public and all are welcome to attend including children and groups (unfortunately, non-service pets are not allowed within the monuments and memorials due to National Park Service regulations).Weather: This event will take place light rain (sprinkles) or shine If it's on our calendar then we're proceeding as scheduled.Meeting Point: Meet at the National World War II Memorial, on the 17th Street side, and look for a large group of friendly people with name tag stickers, which we'll hand out.Ending Point: The National World War II Memorial.
