You can also see this from atop the obelisk, very nice view overlooking the obelisk too. I am sure you have seen this in a lot of movies, words can't really describe the beauty you just have to pay a visit to enjoy the scenery.

We went to visit The Lincoln Memorial on a school trip with a group of teens. We had a tour guide with us so it was interesting to hear some facts about the memorial including the fact that there was a mistake in one of the addresses inscribed on the wall inside of the memorial. It was fun to challenge... More

My parents came to visit and my dad had broken his ankle the week before they flew out. I was able to rent a wheelchair as I knew he couldn't do the amount of walking we had planned. He also was able to get a handicap sign for my car. There is great handicap parking near Lincoln. Also - there... More

I've seen the Memorial on tv before, but when I stood in front of Lincoln's statue and read the words inscribed on the walls of the memorial, I felt proud and inspired. A must see for DC travelers.

We visited at night which I think made the memorial even more impressive. The scale and grandeur of the memorial is appropriate given who it is honouring. I found all the people sitting on the stairs and right in the middle annoying and a little disrespectful but maybe I'm too old school. I strongly recommend a visit and suggest it... More

We went at night and it was so beautiful to see the reflection of the Washington Monument in the reflecting pool while also viewing the monument of Lincoln all light up at night time. Something about the way the lights shine on it all at night time makes it so amazing. This is a must attraction if visiting Washington D.C.!

Loved this. There is a considerable amount of walking to see the memorials. Do not miss this! It is huge! There is also an elevator. The writings are well worth reading. It is magnificent.

The Lincoln memorial is a awesome monument.Just the size of it is amazing,to say nothing about the beautiful details.The memorial was quite crowded when we went on a saturday,so I would advise going during a weekday if possible.
