“Beautiful monument!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

I never tire of viewing this monument anytime but especially at night. It is a highlight of DC that I can never miss during a visit. I am always moved by its beauty.

“Never Doubt Thomas (Jefferson)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

There are many memorials and such to see in the D.C. area, but the Thomas Jefferson Memorial is one of the beter ones to see. regardless of the time of year you visit, the views away from the memorial towards the Mall are spectacular. The writings of Jefferson which are on the walls of the memorial make you realsize what a key player Jefferson was in the founding of the United States.

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

I finally got to see the Jefferson Memorial last visit to DC. It is breath taking to say the least. We were on a Segway tour that stopped for 20 minutes to see the memorial. It was late afternoon and the sun was setting. It was the perfect time to take pictures of all the other monuments in a distance.

“Worth the walk!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

This is such a great memorial but hard to get to. It is a hike from the Lincoln Memorial. We waited till day two and parked in lot A went under the two overpasses then up the stairs and right down to the Monument. Go early before the museums open.

“A stroll for the end of the day...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

I like this monument, but if possible try to go there more towards the end of the day, as the view is very nice and it is a pleasant stroll to do Jefferson and Lincoln around the same time, definitely worth it.
