Last night, my boyfriend and I took a midnight trip with wine to the monuments in celebration of him graduating college!! It might have been the last time he will be able to see the monuments for quite some time so it was great being able to take him as a last hurrah. The monuments at night is always a great time and feels like a completely different experience from being there in the day time. When you go there in the day time its always bustling with people (especially during tourist season) and not to mention hot. But at night when everything is still and silent and the monuments are lit up to contrast the night, its a really beautiful thing to see.
