      Beautiful Structure in a Serene Location
      The Jefferson Memorial is not as prominently located as many of the other monuments and memorials in D.C., and I think that fact actually enhances its beauty. It is located in West Potomac Park on the Tidal Basin. During the Spring, the famous cherry blossoms frame the Memorial. To me, the building is an architectural gem. The neoclassical structure was modeled after the Pantheon in Rome. If you don't get a chance to go inside to see the bronze statue of Thomas Jefferson, be sure to drive through Potomac Park and enjoy the serene setting.
