Washington D.C. - 2

Can I suggest the best way to see all of the sites in D.C. is one of the hop-on hop-off tours. We took the Old Town Trolley. Crowds were smaller, the tour guides were informative. I believe they all stop at the same places. We never waiting more than 15 minutes to get picked up at any stop.

First stop was The Thomas Jefferson Memorial. This is my favorite monument, others in my party, not so much. It is beautiful from across the Patomic, actually from any side. It is also cool to know he, the statue looks straight to the White House to keep an idea on everything.

Now we are off the Lincoln Memorial and all things around. My Mom was on awe of the big guy sitting there watching over everybody, she said 'it was awesome'.  It is probably the most meaningful monument to most Americans. It is overwhelming in size and detail, and the man is so impressive. It is very strange to see they thing your whole life on tv, our currency, but to see it in real life, way cool.

Near the Lincoln Memorial there are so many things to see. Looking out from LM you get the best view over the entire Mall. It is just stunning. Looking out from LM, to the left is the Vietnam Wall, the Three Soldiers Statue and The Women's Vietnam Memorial. All three of these memorials are a must see. The statutes are so life like, they are just amazing. On the right of LM is the Korean War Veterans Memorial.
