What's it like: It's literally awesome. The statue itself has a vast yet human air about it, while the building feels like a temple.
Where: Washington DC, USA
When: July 2010
How: Pete and I did a mini road-trip - we flew in to DC, where we also saw the National Mall (171), and then drove to Fell's Point near Baltimore, followed by Atlantic City and then Philadelphia where we went to Independence National Historic Park (500).
Worth noting: See it at night as well as in daylight - I didn't see it lit up and I wish I had*
