One of the most beautiful memorials in America. Visiting while the trees are in full bloom is incredible, but the Jefferson Memorial is moving any time of year. I personally like visiting here at night as well. Place really lights up in a neat way.

This memorial is beautiful and, as in the picture above, really majestic on a pretty night. Visiting at dusk is great, but they're open 24 hours so really you can visit whenever.

I love how open this memorial is. You can walk all around it inside, so it's a little less stuffy than like, the Lincoln Memorial.

I love the Jefferson Memorial. It is a little out of the way compared to the other monuments in town, so driving is preferred. The best part about this one is that you can walk all the way around, inside and outside uninhibited. There is also a cute little gift shop downstairs (little known fact!).

Seriously beautiful monument. You can take a nice walk from the Lincoln Monument to here and see the FDR and MLK memorials. It's a really nice walk during summer evenings.

Hands down my favorite of the D.C. memorials. It's a little off the beaten path (at least as far as memorials in the city go), but so worth it. I think the scene looking across the water from the memorial is one of the most beautiful in the whole city.

My favorite memorial in DC. It's just beautiful. Surrounded but the Potomac River it's perhaps the best designed building in DC. Standing under the dome and reading about one of America's most influential people is a must.
