I have the opportunity to visit Washington, D.C. each spring with the National Newspaper Association and always cherish my time there.
My favorite statue is this one of Andrew Jackson, which you can also find in Jackson Square in New Orleans and on the grounds of the Tennessee capitol in Nashville.
The monument honoring FDR would be great anyway, but add his dog Fala and it’s unforgettable.
The best memorial for the best president.
The Jefferson Memorial is my second favorite – next to Lincoln.
This year was my first visit to see Dr. Martin Luther King’s memorial, which I found moving. I also can’t look over the reflecting pool from the Lincoln Memorial without thinking of him.
Speaking of the reflecting pool. It was a beautiful day looking out from the Lincoln Memorial.
View of the city while walking to Jefferson Memorial.
Always does my heart good to see a Yellow Lab on the job.
Feeling creative sitting at the bar in the Monocle.
I never visit D.C. without getting out to Georgetown and Martin’s Tavern at least once.
Some delicious offerings at the cafe inside The Willard hotel.
