The Jefferson Memorial is unique among Washington, DC memorials in its setting (the wonderful tidal basin), the architecture and the tribute to one of America's founding fathers and writers/statesmen of world stature. This is a lovely spot to stop on the steps and take in the scene, looking back over the basin to the Washington Monument in the distance and the hundreds of cherry trees circling the basin. Be sure to read his writings enscribed on the inside wall of the Memorial. They are guaranteed to move you.
