34. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial

City: Washington, D.C.
Address: 1964 Independence Ave. SW
Website: mlkmemorial.org

After two decades of planning and construction, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial was opened to the public last August. A dedication ceremony was planned for August 28, the 48th anniversary of his "I Have a Dream" speech, but was delayed by the arrival of Hurricane Irene. The ceremony was eventually rescheduled for October 16, the 16th anniversary of the Million Man March.
