Crawling with people on a sunny day. A real sense of history. Great views over the National Mall towards Capitol Hill.

Looking from the steps, the symmetric layout is pretty awesome, this is a place you have to visit or you will feel something is missing, but for a foreigner like me, it's really not a big deal, admittedly Lincoln is a great man, if you want to pay your respect.

A nice monument to see in person. You can't appreciate the size or beauty when viewing in books or tv.

Of course, it's classic Washington. Perfect aspect for a view back towards Washington Monument and so much more. Elevator is available to Lincoln's level for those unable to climb the stairs. Impressive columns and construction.

It is amazing to see what shape our country in a time when we are so divided. Good to go back to our roots on occasion.

This memorial, along with several others, must be seen lit at night. So be sure to plan a night drive or walk around the mall in DC. I have been here many times over the years and there is an incredible feeling of pride standing before Lincoln or looking out across the mall from this monument.

From the Statue of Lincoln to the Gettysburg Address, finishing with the spot Martin Luther King Jr. spoke, this is an incredibly powerful place. A must visit of many must visits in D.C.
