Outstanding year-round, but spectacular when the cherry trees are blossoming.

One of our favorite monuments in DC. Beautiful views of the tidal basin and Washington monument in the background and lots of space to walk around and explore.

With marble steps and iconic columns, the Thomas Jefferson Memorial is a smaller version of the Roman Pantheon, and its interior walls contain inscriptions from the Declaration of Independence. It’s especially spectacular during the spring cherry blossom season but is still a must-stop year-round.
