Talk in an Elevator Day

Children and a woman stand inside an elevator with partially closed doors.

THE LAST FRIDAY IN JULY IS TALK IN AN ELEVATOR DAY, a holiday that encourages you to strike up a conversation and share knowledge with a stranger. The San Jacinto Monument is uniquely equipped to celebrate, with its historic elevator that sends you to the observation deck 489 feet in the air. Visit the monument on July 26th and enjoy the option to have a unique "elevated" experience during your ride into the sky.
