TR Island: was TR's dislike of Jefferson
- Theodore Roosevelt Island is somewhat outside of the main tourist areas
of DC, but I have always
found it a fitting tribute to TR. It is the largest area of any of the
memorials (if you count the whole
Island) ; it encourages visitors to enjoy nature; it is a quite respite
from the city and it takes some
gumption to get out and see it.
I think TR would be proud.

MessageAnd all the more fitting that it is, actually. I felt at first that TR had been jilted by its location, but for our first major Conservation President, for the hunter, for the outdoorsman, well it's one of my favorite presidential sites in DC. I highly reccomend the swamp walk to anyone with an hour or two to get away from it all in the middle of the city. Especially on a day as lovely as today. I believe there is also the Theodore Roosevelt Trail in Rock Creek Park (where he used to take diplomats, aides and friends on his infamous point-to-point walks) near the NPS Rock Creek Nature Center.-----Original Message-----There is Theodore Roosevelt Island, and on the island a statue of TR, but it is out of the main thoroughfare for tourists (i.e. Washington Monument, Lincoln, Jefferson, FDR, Vietnam, Korean War, Smithsonian, etc.).
