The structures here lifted my spirits after spending over an hour in the dark alone while waiting for the tour bus to come pick me after leaving me behind

We made a special visit by cab to get here to be able to spend time to see this monument. It is a beautiful thing to see up close and highly recommend that you spend time to view it.

Lincoln’s words resonate today. There are many citizens who should take these moving words to heart.

Very impressive monument to President Lincoln. Although they ask for reverence and to be quiet, most people are not respectful of this request. Very noisy. There is an elevator if you can't take the stairs. Came in quite handy for my senior aged parents. Larger...More

We visited the Lincoln Memorial at 5am this morning. It was pretty much deserted with the place to ourselves. Sunrise over the mall was awesome. Get up early and enjoy.

There's parking on either side of the Lincoln memorial, but it is very limited. We mostly used uber and "the hop on hop off" bus the whole time we were there.
