Same-day, free tickets will also be available on a first-come, first-served basis daily, starting at 8:30 a.m.
My question is... at what time should I get to the Washington Monument to get a same-day ticket on, say, Saturday, October 26? If I get there at 8:30am will there be such a long line that I will be unlikely to get the tickets even if I wait in line?
What if I got there at 8:00am and just waited until they opened? I could get there at 7:30am as well.
