Why only 3 stars for the #1 ranked DC attraction? Reading the numerous reviews I always gravitate towards the 1-2 star reviews and then look at the people who post them. It gives me an idea of their mindset and if they're widely travelled or hard to please. Or maybe a bit of both. In my reviews I try to... More

Did the Mall on February 12. Forgotten by me was the fact that it was actually Abraham Lincoln's birthday. There was a touching and moving tribute to one one the great presidents of our republic. Poignant and powerful. This was a wonderful time to reflect and ponder in the greatness of our imperfect yet enduring republic. Everyone needs to come... More

We got into DC late and decided to visit a few staples at night; best decision we've made during our visit. The sites look impressive at night with the lighting and NO CROWDS. We never felt unsafe and taxis and Uber were immediately available.

The Lincoln memorial is an easy walk from a lot of the main attractions or a short bus ride on the circular that's $1 a ride. We went during the main part of the day which meant crowds, not unexpected considering the popularity of the memorial. Take your time to walk around the reflection pool and appreciate the view from... More

I love anything Lincoln. Love reading the history. The building is old and pretty. I think everyone there took a picture next to Lincoln. It was a wonderful experience.

Americans do moments better than anybody else in the world ( in our opinion) and this is no exception . Just a magnificent monument set in a beautiful location . Strongly suggest you use this as a starting point to walk to the Korean memorial , Vietnam Wall and WW 2 memorial .... All equally as moving . Best time... More

Great photo opportunities of the national mall. The memorial is huge and very powerful and moving. Lots of steps to climb but worth it

The Lincoln Memorial is one of the most soul stirring places on earth, for what it represents and what took place here. If you are able to be part of a tour when the Martin Luther King speech is discussed, take advantage and put yourself THERE looking out over the reflecting pools at the Washington Monument. I found myself just... More
