The Lincoln Memorial is just absolutely stunning. It is an amazing sight and the looking down at the reflecting is just awe-inspiring. It is a stunning tribute to an amazing president. Also, don't forget to find the stone where Martin Luther King stood on the March on Washington.

As a local, this is my go to place. In sadness, joy, anger, disgust, this is the place to be. It never ceases to amaze me. I must have have seen it over a 100 times now, but every time is like the first.

Viewing this memorial shivered me with pride of being an American citizen. This monument is dedicated to one of our many heroes. Abraham Lincoln as we all know, is loved and adored by all who truly love our country. I stood mesmerized as I looked upon this icon of American history. "What a wonderful country we live in."

I saw this at night and it was incredibly inspiring. Walking up the steps I almost felt like I was a part of the history of this man and nation.

This memorial is fantastic. The inspirational writings on the wall will make you realize the impact Lincoln had on this country. The view from the top of the stairs toward the Washington Monument across the reflecting pond is breathtaking. The only drawback is the crowds that have a hard time remaining silent and showing respect for this incredible President.

The Memorial fits the man. You can stand in front of it and feel as if the President himself is looking over you. I felt quite protected. You can see the gentleness in his face.

This is the time of year when all of the baby ducklings hatch! They Re probably a few weeks old by now, but fluffy little balls of cuteness. My morning route usually took me past the Jefferson Memorial, and on to the Lincoln. Early in the morning (after sunrise, but early still), you can often catch a mama duck, sunbathing... More

Nothing much to say except that this is a must see for its beauty and historical significance. Best time to see it is early evening. Excellent starting point for evening viewing of other national memorials such as the Vietnam War, Korean War, and FDR memorials.

It is beautiful in daytime but at sunset and night time, it is mesmerizing. It was crowded, but still very enjoyable.
