The Lincoln Memorial is a wonderful sight to see. It is very pretty and I love how you can get up real close to Lincoln. We went and saw it at night, so it was lit up and very pretty. If you are in D.C., make sure to check this out!

You have to see this if you're in DC. I dont think people realize how big it is. A must visit. The Vietnam veterans wall is by it as well.
