A great place to walk around and just take in the size and spectical of Washington. Beautiful gardens surround the memorial which is in easy walking distance of many other memorials and the National Mall. Very impressive.

During our one week stay in DC, we stopped by this memorial on three different occasions. Although crowded at all times, the memorial is impactful and a must-see for any visit to the area.

Humbling to see the core of what distinguishes American culture from the others. Off-shoot from biblical principles are quite obvious. A must see

I have been coming to the Lincoln Memorial since I was a small child, and even though I have lived here for over 30 years, I still don't tire of it. So much history has been made here, and the view East toward the Capitol Dome is without parallel. A must for every visitor to Washington.

A visit to the Lincoln Memorial is pretty much a must do for anyone visiting Washington DC. Just to stand there and take in the sights... its pretty amazing. I am not a big fan of crowds, especially in my photos, so I came early in the morning. I'm very glad I did, when I walked by a few hours... More

The Lincoln Memorial is an absolute must-see among the memorials. The view from the top of the steps is picture-perfect. Inside the memorial, the atmosphere is very serene, even with other visitors around. Since the memorial is one of the most popular to visit, it's usually pretty crowded, especially at midday. But whenever I visit, I'm struck by the sense... More

Awesome, majestic memorial to one of our great Presidents. We loved the walk along the reflecting pool on the way to the Memorial. Huge old trees along the walkway make a shady, cool, walk on a warm spring day.

A stop on the night Old Town Trolley tour. I had been here before during the day, but it takes on a whole different persona at night. Very majestic. Stand in front and take it in. A moving monument to an amazing leader.

I have visited the Lincoln Memorial many times and as always I'm impressed with the way our NPS service keeps this monument to a very important person in the history of our country. The one thing that did disappoint was people wading in the reflecting pool, which seemed a little disrespectful to me.

This is simply one of the true classic monuments in DC and in the United States. It is not to be missed!! If you can get there in the early side of the morning--do so--Fabulous views
