Great views especially at sunset. Climb to the top wasn't bad at all.

Went on an uncrowned morning not quite in season. I imagine much more claustrophobic and loud when there’s a ton of people in that tiny space. Love the Adirondack chairs on the lawn!

First to Review

Climbing the 252 foot monument is a definite leg burner but you will forget all that when you get to the top and take in 360 degree views. If you want to save 30 feet of vertical, instead of using the downtown parking lot, come on up to the pay parking at the base of the monument. The monument sits on a hill so even the base offers some views.
