Definitely the best memorial in DC. Sculptures, waterfalls, evocative quotes... A fitting tribute to the man who brought this country out of the Great Depression.
Did you know Franklin Delano Roosevelt hosted a hot dog picnic at his private retreat in Hyde Park, New York for King George VI and Queen Elizabeth?
The best memorial in DC, different quotes and sculptures are all around. Even on the steps! You could spend hours looking around this one monument.
I'm not sure why people are coming up and taking pic in the bread line with smiles on. It was not a happy time.
TeamTRI Tip: there are 2 FDR memorials in DC. The original is easy to miss...it's on the grounds of the Nat'l Archives. The other is this magnificent tribute. Find a park ranger and get the full scoop
President that got all of you social security!
New Deal, people!
One of the greatest presidents of all set a benchmark for all the monument is fitting. Some cool different sculptures beautiful waterfall read the words and take a moment big photo op here
Impressive and moving. Planners beautifully rendered this memorial.
Sad to see how many visitors - wink, wink millennials - don't understand the monument depicting how impoverished we were, and decide to pose smiling with the statues of those in the food line.
Make sure to start at Term 1 and work you way through the time line.
Ask yourself if the current leaders of our country have the same love of our country's REAL core values as FDR once did.
If you make it this far you are almost to Jefferson. You gotta see Jefferson, declaration of Independence writer?!!
Start at the water falls and work your way to the quiet pool.
More involved and evocative than most of the monuments. Take the full walk through
Great narrative landscape architecture. Start from the west end to experience it correctly.
This is the most surprising, and all encompassing Memorial at The Mall. It's a little off the beaten path but it's worth the trip.
Come here for anti-American quotes!
"Hands down my favorite memorial in DC..the tidal basin is gorgeous in the summer." - Kim, COL' 12
Be sure to read all his quotes. Very inspirational.
This memorial is as much about today's world as it was FDRs. Why did we not learn this lesson?
My favorite of all the memorials!
My favorite memorial in all of DC. Tip: take lots of pictures! #mco435
Children enjoying the monument.
Coolest of all the monuments.
Worst president EVER! Just skip over this one. He is the reason our country is so in debt now. Let's all lean on the government!
I need to do this again at night. Impressive and creative design.
Love the statue if the dog (Fala)...
Worth seeing!! Beautifully done
Restrooms here at both ends of the Memorial.
To avoid the crowds, arrive late afternoon or early evening and remember to bring a camera.
Don't use the bathrooms, they are disgusting.
I share the same middle names as this guy
This is an under-appreciated gem of a monument, and kids love it because there are lots of fountains and rocks to climb on.
Great memorial to see at sunset! By far, my favorite memorial along with Lincoln.
Take time through this one. FDR did so much for our country in incredibly trying times. This monument to him is very touching
Woooow!!! Read all tge phrases, nice thoughts
Stroll round the water’s edge taking in the monuments and memorials. The FDR Memorial is a must-see. Alternatively, rent a paddleboat (tidalbasinpaddleboats.com) or do a Potomac River cruise.
One of the best memorials! Love this place!
