It’s that time again. It’s almost the end of the month and it’s time for more travel quotes.
I hope these quotes inspire you to either travel more or just make you think.
Enjoy them however they make you feel.
There are so many museums , monuments and memorials in Washington DC that you just don’t know which one to visit first .
Most tourists who come to the Nation’s Capital always seem to visit the same tourist attractions .
The Lincoln Memorial , Arlington National Cemetery , the Vietnam War Memorial , Martin Luther King Jr Memorial , the Washington Monument , and even the World War I I Memorial .
If you happen to be doing your own 30 Plus Teams Tour of Washington DC , or even if you aren’t doing one, why not visit the memorial that you can see across the water from the Doctor Martin Luther King Jr Memorial , which you also should visit if you’re in town.
It’s the memorial to the third President of the United States , Thomas Jefferson .
No matter what time of the day you go to visit this memorial, there doesn’t seem to be a lot of tourists visiting .
It could be how long it takes to walk to the memorial or maybe it’s the out of the way location of this place.
If you choose not to visit this memorial, you’re missing out on seeing one of the most beautiful locations in the city, it’s called The Tidal Basin.
In the spring, you’ll get to see the Cherry Blossoms , which were a gift from Japan.
When the cherry blossoms come out, you’ll have one of the most Instagram worthy pictures of the city.
The shape of the building might remind some of you to your visit to Monticello , Jefferson ‘ s home in Virginia .
It might also remind some of you of the rotunda at the University of Virginia .
There’s a reason for that .
President Jefferson , who seemed to take this multitasking thing and run with it , not only designed the rotunda at his home, but also at the University of Virginia as well.
The rotunda of his memorial is basically the same at what you saw in Charlottesville , Virginia .
Walking up the many steps to the memorial, you notice the statue of the president .
He seems to dwarf the entire place.
Not surprising, because he was one of the tallest presidents .
All around the building , you notice all the things that Jefferson did in his lifetime .
Planter, musician , ambassador , vice president , president, husband and father, not to mention a signer of the Declaration of Independence .
As you look around you think to yourself , where did this guy get all this energy from and when did he have time to run the country?
If you happen to be visiting one of my favorite cities , Baltimore , Maryland , this is one of the areas of the city that you must visit , The Inner Harbor .
This is basically where the city of Baltimore began, right on the water.
The Inner Harbor , though , wasn’t a big tourist attraction in Baltimore until it was refurbished in the 19 80 ‘ s and 1990’s.
Now, there are restaurants , an aquarium , and ships that served not only in World War I I , but you’ll see a replica of the USS Constellation , that served in the War of 1812.
I hope these pictures will inspire you to visit Baltimore and you’ll come to love it as much as I do.
When I started my little story in February of this year on WordPress.com about what to see and do in a city after you’ve gone to that football , baseball , hockey , or basketball game, I didn’t think anyone would be interested in it.
We’re now at almost the end of September , and I discovered that I was wrong.
A lot of you do like my little travel story.
101 of you to be exact and for that I thank all of you.
I will continue to write stories about places to see and things to do on a 30 Plus Teams Tour as long as the Good Lord allows me to and I hope even more of you will go on this journey with me, and maybe get inspired to visit some of these places.
Even if you aren’t doing a 30 Plus Teams Tour .
Thank you all again and God Bless You!
Sincerely , Sports Diva 64
Fort McHenry is the place that inspired Francis Scott Key to write the United States National Anthem , “The Star Spangled Banner.”
He watched the bombardment of this fort by the British during the War of 1812.
The British had just burned down Washington DC , and were heading to Baltimore .
Fort McHenry was in their way.
These are some pictures of the fort that I took on my 30 Plus Teams Tour of Charm City .
The fort is pretty much the same as it looked during the war.
After the war, the fort was used to house Confederate Civil War Prisoners and was a Naval hospital during World War I .
If you happen to get the chance to visit Baltimore , make Fort McHenry a stop .
If not, I hope some of the pictures will inspire you.
Silly me !
