It's hard not to imagine the dedication and history when standing in the steps of this memorial. The words of Lincoln and the standing place of Dr King was truly humbling

Who doesn't love Abe? He's bigger than life and so impressive. And the view from the monument looking down the mall is worth every step up.

The memorial is most closely associated with the history and fame of this political center which influences the thoughts of democracy around the world. It's a must see for a first timer.

Had to go and see the Lincoln memorial. As monuments go it is awesome, again done in great taste and a great monument to a great former president. His famous Gettysburg address is inscribed on the walls of the monument. And if you like history you can stand in the spot where Martin luther king stood to deliver hi I... More

Near the Vietnam Memorial and Korean War Memorial, which are also good evening visits.

This was the 2nd time I had been to the Lincoln memorial (once as a child and now as an adult) and am still in awe of its awesome size. What I would consider to be one of the best views to look back at the WWII memorial and Washington monument can be seen from the steps of the Lincoln... More

The building is magnificent, amazing to imagine them building it almost 100 years ago! The steps of this Memorial are a great place to sit and take a breath. The calm of the reflecting pool in front of you and the strength and protection of Lincoln behind you. Breathtaking and inspirational
