it was quite a walk around the tidal basin, but the jefferson memorial was worth it. personally, i loved it. not as crowded as the lincoln memorial, and no lines. i think it is overlooked. you can rent a paddleboat and boat across the basin, which i think will be really awesome and not as tiring. it's beautiful inside, with a statue of jefferson, and a museum underground. the cherry blossoms there are beautiful in the spring, and the weather was nice. (we went in early april). the FDR memorial is really close by, so if you have the time or stamina, walk over there and have a look. not as great as the jeff. memorial in my opinion, but still worth a see. and one last note, if you are there on spring break, be sure to go there on April 13th, jefferson's birthday!
