You see in plenty of movies and TV shows the Lincoln memorial but it is definitely not the same than seeing it in person. I recommend seeing it at night if you can because it is just stunning. It is also less crowded and you can go up and down the steps without accidentally bumping someone. On a beautiful night... More

This is a beautiful and awe inspiring memorial. We actually visited twice - once on a moonlight tour and once during the day. Totally different at night when everything is all lit up. This is a great place to get some fantastic shots of the National Mall. From the top of the memorial looking east you get a view of... More

How can you go to DC and not stop by this memorial. Well worth the walking distance. Being there makes you appreciate the efforts of this great president! The reflecting pool completes the memorial.

It's the Lincoln Memorial...somehow I think that is enough to say but, I will say more. It is enormous...you see it from a distance and it is impressive, then you walk up the stairs to approach it and it grows into this massive piece of art . It is stunning and emotional. I love that his words are on the... More

This is a must for visits to the National Mall. The giant statue of President Lincoln is inspiring and humbling. The quotes in stone are worth pondering. Expect a crowd day and night. And try to visit several times. Stand where Martin Luther King stood for his famous speech. The climb is worth it for the view of the Mall... More

This would be the one. Stunning. Seen at night, the Lincoln is truly an awe-inspiring temple worthy of the man it honors.

A must do visit to this grand, elegant and fitting memorial. Lincoln's seated sculpture is awe inspiring and fitting for such a great man.
