Watch the Washington Monument While Stuck At Your Desk

Upgrade the view from your office or cubicle with these six live cams all focused on the Washington Monument. With help from EarthCam and the National Park Service, you can get an up-close look at how the weather, traffic, and people are doing from up above like some angelic creature. Rather than watch a cat video or stare at the endless uncomfortable abyss that is Facebook, instead sit back, relax, and enjoy the big, beautiful city that is Washington, D.C.

How's the weather out there? Rainy? Snowy?

Is it crowded at the National Mall? What's the traffic like?

Check out the panoramic shot! Nice.

Kill three birds with one stone by enjoying a view of the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, and the Capitol all at once, weather check included.

What's that building next to the Washington Monument? Oh, that's the National Museum of the African History and Culture.

This live cam jumps up and around all over the Tidal Basin and National Mall, checking out the cherry blossoms, the Potomac River, and, of course, the Washington Monument.
