Reviewed 1 September 2014 via mobile

I felt this was the best monument to visit as it was very peaceful and not extremely crowded. Also the view was fantastic.

“Simple elegance”
Reviewed 31 August 2014

This is another site which is a bit off the beaten path, but worth visiting. Inside the colonnade is a huge statue of Jefferson, and on the walls are the words he wrote from the Declaration of Independence and other sources.

“Worth the walk”
Reviewed 31 August 2014

We parked in the three free hour parking and walked over. There are some paddle boats (22 dollars an hour for a four person one) if you want to see it from the water. Beside the paddle boats you can buy a hotdog if you are hungry after your walk/paddle. The building and statues are lovely.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed 31 August 2014

Wonderful thing about Washington is that the majority of its major landmarks are free and accessible, as is this.

“Iconic and worth the walk off the mall”
Reviewed 30 August 2014 via mobile

This one at first appears a little off the main area of the mall but it is worth the walk from the mall to visit the memorial to Jefferson and what he achieved whilst president of the USA. The views over the basin towards Washington are impressive and after the walk to the memorial you can relax for a while on the steps before heading back to the main area. The structure is beautiful and has a statue of Jefferson inside with quotes and information on his achievements. There is also information under the memorial to see also.
