This is a beautiful and extensive memorial that slowly reviews the highlights and soul of the four presidential terms of FDR. This memorial was more breathtaking to me than the large flashy memorials - it is very human and very raw and very beautiful. I recommend reading a book on FDR or at least watching a good documentary before you visit, and then enjoy the amazing symbolic beauty of the site. It's especially gorgeous as evening falls on the city.

What a tribute, tear jerking inspiration with a flare of water enhanced tranquility that was both soothing and cooling.

Pictures taken here with the kids in line with their head down are some of the best of the trip. This memorial is great with several aspects of the memorial. Quite different from all the memorials. A must see while in DC.

I was amazed at what a wonderful job they did with this memorial, taking us through the journey of his presidency. Loved the waterfalls increasing in size as you go along.

Loved this place and all the quotes from our longest tenure President. Really amazing in the spring especially around the Cherry Blossom blooming.
Spend extra time walking between the MLK and Thomas Jefferson Memorials.. don't take the busses. Enjoy the lake and one of the best and least trafficked memorials in all of DC.
