So your feet are falling off, but you want to see the FDR Memorial. Construction of the parking lot at the Jefferson memorial means the tour bus won't stop there (and most don't stop at FDR); It's a bit of a walk from Lincoln, and the in-construction MLK memorial results in a long detour to get to there on foot from the WWI memorial. You're wondering if it's worth it. It is definitely worth it.
This is by far my favorite monument. I spent two hours here in peaceful serenity. From granite walls and waterfalls, statues and quotes, you won't be bored or sorry you came. Be sure to start at the correct side as it begins in FDR's first term, and each section is devoted to a term. Most of the quotes are still quite meaningful today. The pools and waterfalls signify various events/periods during those years, such as WWII and the Great Depression and Roosevelt's death. Take your time -- even go out to the tidal basin nearby under a cherry tree and sit on a bench overlooking the water.
So put on your good walking shoes and see the FDR memorial twice -- yes twice! Once during the day and once at night. The waterfalls are magnificent at night.
