Very different to the Jefferson & Lincoln Memorials, But definitely worth a look on your way to the Jefferson Memorial.. Roosevelts quotations are still sadly, very relavent in the world we live in today.

I visited this at night & did not see the entire exhibit. It was lit very very dimly & the writing was hard to read. The fountains were nice. The sculptures were good.

A very beautiful and peaceful walk through a wonderfully shaded memorial. Waterfalls and peace & quite were the order of the day in late September without all of the crowds.

Easily one of the most impressive monuments to any of our Presidents. Large and beautiful, this is a place where you could easily spend an hour just to take in the details including the history of this man's era. Really cool!

This is a beautiful monument. It is spread over 7 acres and has many scenes and quotations that really honor FDR. There is a very lovely statue of Mrs Roosevelt as well, one of the only first ladies to garner this honor.

This to me was the most impressive memorial that we saw. It kept going on and on and had different figures and sayings. Don't miss this one!

We went here & thought it was lovely. We used the hop on, hop off bus. It was not as packed as we thought it might be.
