We walked from the Smithsonian Metro stop to the Tidal Basin to see the 3 monuments. We did not quite realize what a long walk it is especially in the 90 degree heat. Our efforts were rewarded by the impact of the FDR memorial. It is like a walk-through diorama history of his presidency. It is beautiful. The quotes inscribed on the walls are relevant to today. I wish I would have had the energy and time to walk through it more than once. I hope to return sometime.
When we completed our walk, we bought over-priced water bottles at the MLK gift shop and grabbed a cab at the taxi stand to take us to Foggy Bottom- a great choice considering how tired we were and that it only cost $10 which is not much more than Metro rides for the 3 of us would cost.
