February 22 - Theodore Roosevelt Island
This island in the Potomac River is a living memorial to President Theodore Roosevelt, a great outdoorsman and conservationist. There are many miles of trails that cross the island and a central plaza with Roosevelt’s statue. The island, which is maintained by the National Park Service, is only reachable by a footbridge from Arlington, Va.
Roosevelt is probably the only president who can get away with commemorating his “manhood” at a memorial!
