“LOVELY SETTING”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Lovely setting on the basin and nice walk from Washington Monument. Ideal on a dry day as the other monuments are further away but you can rest between stages and do it at leisure.Impressive monument.

“Trip of a life time”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

We ummed and ahhed about our one day trip to the great Washington dc, but wow are we glad we made the trip.our tour guide made sure he kept us on schedule,it was a long way from new York but we were not tired when we got back as we didn't have to do the driving.The memorial was magnificent,Thomas Jefferson sitting there up there under those pillars was a site to behold.I remember the movie with forest gump standing there giving a speech to all those returned soldiers and the lake where his child hood sweet heart came running from.We took a lot of photos,a lot beautiful quotes etched on the walls in stone.Well worth seeing.

“Very impressive”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Nice location, you can see the memorial from long distance near the lake or across the lake. Like a lot of memorials in DC has many columns and a big statue. Very interesting the quotes on the walls.
