All reviews tidal basin founding fathers cherry blossoms beautiful monument declaration of independence his words great man national mall beautiful at night potomac river white house my favorite worth the trip awe inspiring gift shop statue memorial

We stopped here over Thanksgiving Day and it gave us a strong sense of what it should mean to be grateful as an American, and hopefully demonstrated to visitors that we have not always been the way we are currently.
