“Very impressive”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Nice location, you can see the memorial from long distance near the lake or across the lake. Like a lot of memorials in DC has many columns and a big statue. Very interesting the quotes on the walls.

“Something you need to do once”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We had a beautiful day so we walked from our hotel on 14th between H & I (Hilton Garden) down towards the museums and made a "loop" of the memorials including some famous Presidents and then couple I was not famaliar with; walking around the lake enjoying the grounds brought us to Jefferson Memorial then we continued on to the Lincoln memorial followed by the Vietnam and WWII memorials that brought us back to 14th street & our hotel. The map provided by the hotel was very helpful in the planning of this afternoon walk.

“Simple but classy - the Soul of America”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The monuments - especially the Lincoln and Jefferson memorials - are a great way to understand how America differs from the world (the inscriptions on the walls). They are also surprisingly classy and well thoughtout structures that would compare with anything in Europe.

“Don't miss it!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

You've seen this on many movies, so it's good to see it in real life. We took the Trolley Tour Bus, (brilliant) and the live tour guides (not audio headphones) give great info and history about it.
