This is in the heart of the famous Japanese Cherry Blossoms, if you're lucky enough to be visiting D.C. during the 10 days these pink trees are blooming every March. Otherwise, this monument is tied with the Lincoln Memorial with having the best view, where pairs of people are able to rent…
Huge memorial located off of the tidal basin. This is a must see, especially during cherry blossom season!
The Jefferson Memorial is another highlight to see in DC. It's great to visit in the spring and see the Cherry Blossoms near the Tidal Basin. FREE to visit.
Great view, especially during the Cherry Blossom Festival. The Jefferson Memorial is a presidential memorial built in Washington, D.C. between 1939 and 1943, under the sponsorship of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. For Roosevelt it was a suitable memorial to the Founding Father of the United…
This memorial is often overlooked, but it offers a beautiful view across the basin. My tip: pack a picnic and rent some bikes and enjoy the views!
Our favorite monument! Also beautiful to visit at night if the weather is good.
Motive from Pantheon of Rome, Thomas Jefferson Memorial is one of the key landmarks in the heart of Washington D.C. The neoclassical structure conveys the importance of Declaration of Independence. The place is also surrounded by Japanese flowering cherry trees that come from the Tidal Basin.
A must visit specially during the the Cherry Blossom splendour, or on a summer night (likes enjoying around).
“One of the best views in DC. You can see the entire national mall all the way to the Capitol building when you stand on the stairs of the Lincoln. We would sit here at night when I was a teenager. Long, long, long ago. ”
“Attracting millions of people each year, the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum contains a trove of celebrated aircraft, including Amelia Earhart's Lockheed Vega 5B, Charles Lindbergh's Spirit of St. Louis and Wilbur and Orville Wright's 1903 Wright Flyer, among others. Exhibits include a flight simulator, an IMAX theater and the Einstein Planetarium. And parents beware: The three-level gift shop is huge, so get ready for pleas from your kids.”
“With more than 126 million artifacts on display, this robust Smithsonian museum on the National Mall attracts millions of visitors each year. Some of the museum's highlights include tarantula feedings in the O. Orkin Insect Zoo and the replicas of giant whales and other marine life in the 23,000-square-foot Sant Ocean Hall. You can also venture to the Samuel C. Johnson IMAX Theater for a show or the Butterfly Pavilion for some fluttery fun with multi-colored bugs. And no stop at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History would be complete without stopping by the David H. Koch Hall of Human Origins, which traces the history of human species over the past 6 million years and displays life-size models of early human faces generated using modern forensic techniques. While the museum's famous National Fossil Hall is currently closed while it undergoes renovations, dinosaur fossils can be viewed in "The Last American Dinosaurs: Discovering a Lost World" exhibit on the second floor.”
“You can tour the White House, the iconic home of America’s president, by scheduling a visit in advance. Even if you are unable to schedule a visit, walk around to the back to get a closer view of the building.”
“I occasionally go here at night, sit on the steps, and just observe the reflection pool along with the Washington Monument in the night sky. I honestly think the experience is better at night. There’s usually college aged adults and small groups of tourists around even at 1am. ”
