With the Washington Monument temporarily closed, the Old Post Office has taken over as the city’s best viewing point—and you can see the Washington Monument from here too. It’s a 47-second ride to the ninth floor; you then change to another elevator bound for the 12th, and top, floor. The 270ft observation level allows visitors an awe-inspiring view of the city and surrounding area.
