About the tour

Please note that each part in this series of tours is designed to be a stand alone tour. I.e. it's not necessary to have seen Part 1 or 2 to enjoy Parts 3 and 4. Join Terry as we visit the Jefferson Memorial, dedicated in 1943 in honor of the United States' third president. We'll discuss why the memorial is situated where it is and discuss the architecture of this striking structure. In late March to early April we will be able to witness up close and personal the beautiful spring cherry blossoms in full bloom.

Awesome, as always! I love Aaron and Patrick’s flexibility! They added a magnificent sunset over the Hudson to their tour - just because it was too beautiful not to share!
