What a lovely tribute to a true hero. A must see if you're in the National Mall area. When we went it wasn't crowded at all but this was also right after the attack on the Capitol.

This is a must see. The memorial is lined with many of Dr. King's powerful quotes. Make sure not to miss the gift shop across the street.

The MLK Memorial in DC is one that serves as a tribute to Civil Rights Leader Martin Luther King Jr. It is a place I recommend everyone go to while in the city.
