Sitting at the Southern end of the National Mall, the Thomas Jefferson Memorial and Tidal Basin are a must-see if you are in the Washington D.C. area. Best known for the annual Cherry Blossom Festival, this venue is a wonderful destination year-round. See the grandeur of the Thomas Jefferson statue, soak in the beautiful view of the Tidal Basin, rent a paddleboat and become part of the action or simply linger on the steps of the Jefferson Memorial.
Bring a picnic lunch or buy from one of the local vendors. Walking tours of the National Mall can make for long days with little ones. Try to break up walking tours with bathroom breaks, snacks, plenty of water and know when it is time to quit for the day. LINK
