“Amazing president, tasteful memorial”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

It both captured the hardships of American's during his presidency and his words of wisdom well. You also have a nice view of the tidal basin a pleasant walk during the day. I recommend going during the Cherry Blossom Festival, the tress and the air make for a pleasant stay.
