Great stop as it's right off I-64 -- and you can also see the Washington Monument replica while you're at it!

I found this intriguing piece of art while looking for the miniature replica of the Washington Monument in Mt. Vernon. Turns out they are about 200 feet apart from each other. It is a sculpture of sorts made up of various road signs. It's a perfect representation of how many of us feel while sometimes getting lost looking for that highly prized roadside attraction.

It right off the road at the north end of the Municipal West Building's parking lot right on Potomac Blvd.
