Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial – Washington D.C.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial

The FDR Memorial in Washington D.C. is a lovely memorial with multiple waterfalls.  It is closer to the Thomas Jefferson monument than the White House.

Make sure you pick the right side of the National Mall to park at, because otherwise you will be walking a ton to get there. I know because I made this mistake!  Study a map and how everything is laid our before you go to D.C. I really did a lot of walking because I didn’t not do this simple thing.

The waterfalls are intended to symbolize the increasing chaos surrounding FDR’s presidency, marked by the Great Depression, World War II, and Roosevelt’s death in 1945.

Like most things in Washington D.C. it is completely free to walk through the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial.
