“Jefferson Memorial”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

We made a recent trip to Washington. We were able to see this memorial while we were there. It is just amazing to see the monuments and memorials face to face. Easy to get to using the trolley bus.

“Wow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

The architecture here is amazing, read every inscription and just take it all in. I can't really put into words how I felt at this memorial, but it was stunning and inspiring.

“Imposing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

A great memorial to one of the founding fathers.
It sits in DC alongside all the other memorials and together they are a great reminder and tribute to US history
No trip to DC is complete without a visit/viewing of memorial mall

“Take the time to apprecate it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Take the time to read all the inscriptions. Sit on the benches provided, and think about the power of words to shape a new country. Few people have a chance to single-handedly change the course of history. Here stands a memorial to just such a person.

“Spectacular....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

For architecture this monument is absolutely spectacular... In size, location and view. Even though it is officially in Virginia (according to a ranger I spoke to), it is well worth a visit... A must see!
