I was able to see this monument on the night tour with the Big Bus tours. It was beautiful and reflected the elegance that was Jefferson. Very cold this time of year, though.

We went as part of the Walking DC Tours, and it was one of the last stops. After a longgggg afternoon of walking in the summer heat, we finally arrived. Boy was it worth it!
It was quieter than all the other monuments, possibly because it is located farther away than the other monuments, it was probably our favourite. Take the time to explore the area and take in the magnitude of this monument. The area is beautiful and impeccably clean, great views of the lake.

Another must see on your tour of WDC:..A good tour guide will make WDC a wonderful experience. The night tour is my recommendation. Even though many bring small children, they need to come back when they can really comprehend what they see.

You will be highly disappointed if you miss it. It is a must see on any DC trip! Make sure to give yourself enough time to really take in the beauty of the memorial and setting. Parking is not ideal, so be prepared to walk quite a ways to the memorial.

Like the Lincoln Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial is one of those icons that as a Canadian I have seen so often on TV....which represent DC to me. Its in walking distance of the Mall, the Lincoln Memorial, etc.... well worth seeing while you are in DC.
