We traveled here in June 2011 so the area was under construction at that time. You don't realize how huge the memorial is until you see it for yourself. Definitely hope to return one day!

I have great respect for Abraham Lincoln and was excited to visit his memorial. The scale of Lincoln is amazing. I loved how he sits above everyone with his great speeches carved on the walls. It was colder in the memorial than outside, so if you visit in winter be prepared!

This iconic memorial is a must see at anytime of the day but it is so beautiful at night when there aren't so many people there. The view back up the mall to the Capitol are amazing.

We went there a few days before the inauguration of Trump. Lincoln reminds you that the US had good presidents in the past.

I first visited this monument as a teenager, many years ago, and still remember how awed I was by it. I still feel the same way when I look up at President Lincoln sitting there. And, if you're tired from viewing all the memorials and monuments nearby, you can sit and rest on the steps!

If this is your first visit to D.C., you cannot skip seeing the Lincoln Memorial. It is one of the original memorials that you see in every pic of the D.C. mall. You can only appreciate the size by walking up the steps and standing next to the statue.

An excellent place to visit! The memorial was majestic and fitting for such a great man! It is a must-go when you are in DC! The walk to the memorial was also great as it was filled with other memorials and buildings which are of great significance to the USA.
