You might want to wait a month or so

If you can wait to make your trip, the National Park Service may get things back under control. This fabulous Memorial is a must see.
Distressing experience. The area is filled with illegal activity and no law enforcement presence. National Park Service seems to have abandoned all regulations even at our most revered memorials. Manipulators exploiting visitors for cash. Aggressive vendors heckling the tourists and blocking walkways. Trash and grocery carts adorn the main plazas.
Pay close attention to your surroundings.
The" free for all" seems to have accelerated during quarantine and no effort is being made to manage the space in regard to tourism. For many this is a once in a lifetime trip. It will leave an impression and it will not be positive.

Not to be missed.

Met our expectations. Beautiful architecture, and to read the history and see Abe himeself very humbling. Very crowded of course, but on the whole people were coureous, though many not wearing masks.

This sculpture was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. It was grand and was perfectly crafted. The detail was amazing. A wonderful tribute to such a honest and smart, kind man. Made me proud to be an American.

Inspiring
Jul 2021 • Family
This is truly a great American monument. It did not disappoint, it is awe inspiring the size and detail, and a fitting tribute to Lincoln. The writings on the walls are inspiring and a reminder of what it means to be president. Lincoln did the right thing even though it cost him half the country and ultimately his life. Modern presidents don't do the right thing if it means losing the electoral college vote. Don't miss this monument on your visit to washington. A great tribute to our greatest president.

It takes a lot of walking to get here, but it’s worth it. It’s impressive, huge! I love the statue of Lincoln and the speeches along the sides of the building inside.
