“A must see in DC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

It's a part of our history. Lincoln being one of our greatest presidents, everyone should visit his memorial on a trip to DC.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012 via mobile

From the anticipation of walking up to it, it lives up to every moment. The stairs, to the statue, to the inscribed words on the walls. Must see for everyone.

“Terrific View...no Reflecting Pool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

This memorial measures up to its reputation. It looks beautiful at night. The Pool is empty right now for renovations; sad to miss that.

“Reflecting pool undergoing work...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

but if you have been walking from all the monument, Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt walking around the tidal basin after the World War II, this is an impressive one to come to for a rest and get a view across the city.
