Thomas Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C

13 E Basin Dr SW Washington, DC 20242
Washington DC is home to some of the world's best architecture and sites to visit.

Among these are the memorials, or buildings built in honor in memory of the most influential historical figures in our time. It's our way of keeping their memories alive. Set in a predetermined fashion, the Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, White House, Capitol, and Jefferson Memorial make up the National Mall, our nation's salute to the products of our fight for freedom and the pursuit of happiness.

The Jefferson Memorial is dedicated to the memory of Thomas Jefferson, one of the authors of the Declaration of Independence and also one of the presidents of the United States. His memorial is at the tidal basin, which, in the springtime, is surrounded by the beautiful Japanese Cherry Blossoms. Visitors are able to rent out kayaks right next to the memorial and paddle their way around the basin with the beautiful statue of Jefferson overlooking you. For visitors who visit inside, you're greeted by the massive standing statue of Jefferson towering over you. He's surrounded by some of his greatest quotes and speeches, all of which focus on the ideas of equality and our rights as human beings.

For those interested in the history of Thomas Jefferson, his memorial is one of the best places to start. Visitors are able to discover his views and ideas on life and how a government should operate. He was, of course, one of the original authors of the Declaration of Independence, so there are no surprises there.
