Pay a visit to Jefferson Memorial and take a moment for some quiet reflection. There's a great range of things to do in this destination. Live theatre can challenge our assumptions and asks us to aspire to be more. Sit down for a show at Ford's Theatre and open your mind to some big ideas. Still got some time on your hands?
