Such a beautiful memorial to the man who was so dedicated to America for the betterment of ALL people. (And the bathrooms are clean!)

Reasonable size monument and we were able to take photographs. It was a shame that City Sights DC bus took 2 hours for the connecting Loop, so we had to rush and did not have enough time.

Visited Washington a while ago and thoroughly enjoyed my time there. The Lincoln memorial was impressive, if not slightly spooky. A must see in when in DC!

The Lincoln Memorial towers over the Reflecting Pool, at the western end of the National Mall. To be safe we used the Uber at night to get around in DC; however, walking around the memorials and reflecting pool we did not run into any problems....More

This memorial is just awesome, even though lots of visitors attend. I'd suggest going round the building to enjoy a great view of downtown Washington. Worth the trip.

Very cool to see!! It was extremely hot & humid, even at night (around 9:30 pm), but I'm sure it was much better than being there during the day. There's a beautiful view of the Washington monument and the memorial in general looks very beautiful...More

I recommend you take a night tour if you're going in summer time, because during the day is very hot. The night tour is very nice because of the lights.

Very impressive classic architecture and a big statue of the big man. Prominent site along the Mall and River. Impressive.

Really loved it. It is one in a lifetime experience. I never knew what I was missing. It is very crowded but worth it.

I not only enjoyed visiting this landmark, I revisited the area numerous times during my stay. Loved walking around the National Mall and Reflecting pool. Rented bikes and tooled around the area. Great walking and bicycling city.

you can park on any streets around the memorial area, regular street parking, but read the signs, they can get quite confusing.
