Standing at this beautiful rendition to Abe Lincoln is just spectacularly moving at night. A wonderful honor to him and everything he stood for. Just go for the sake of incredible history and to see DC from the stairs at night. It's also much cooler...More

Visited this place on 14th July. The place was swarming with tourists. But the decorum was maintained. A great monument of the great American President

The place is phenomenal. The store is small, yet very nicely organized. The toilet is super clean and super cold to shelter a bit from summer sun.

Take a moment to climb the stairs and read the inscriptions. The view back towards the Washington monument is iconic. Take some time to see the exhibit under the monument to better understand how Lincoln changed the US.

I've wanted all my life to see the Lincoln Memorial. It was the first thing we visited when we got here, spent more time at the Memorial than at anywhere else, and I felt my trip was complete after being there.

I do not know why I was expecting it to be larger than what it was but nonetheless it was still impressive!

I honestly don’t think that’ll be enough time for you to see all the monuments. I’d order a visitors guide off the website just so you can have a map of the area so you can plan everything out. Hope this helped some.

It is. But D.C. is worth spending more time in. If you also want to visit some of the museums, you should plan for some days. Enjoy your stay. It is a nice city. :)
