This is an important part of history. Any visit to DC has to include this. This particular monument is very inspiring.
Must see on a trip to DC. We went both during the day and at night. It was equally beautiful at both times. There were far less people at night. Small gift store with cute items.
I am a native Washingtonian and I can tell you that this memorial is one of my favorites. There is so much history here with the Gettysburg Address on the wall of the memorial and many of Lincoln’s favorite sayings. The view from the top of the stairs of the memorial across the reflecting pool down the Mall is amazing. It is not to miss when you are in D.C.
Amazing place with a full visión of Washigton. It worth go up the stairs to see Lincoln. From the right angle you can see the Washigton Monument + The WhiteHouse.
On sundays, nice weather, take your bike and go! One day trip departing from NY by train was worth the visit.
Much more majestic than one realizes. A must see and a great start point for key places to see. We took Uber from our hotel to the memorial and started our day from there. It’s A logical step to move on to the Korean War memorial, Vietnam War memorial, WWII and Washington monument.
Not much to say that hasn't been said about the most iconic memorial in the US. We visited both at night and during the day and it was humbling both times.
My son was part of a high school band playing for the Parade of heros the Saturday before veterans day. Such a big honor. Its amazing durning day but breath taking at night. Must see for sure both by day and by night.
Not much to say about a statue but here goes. Its iconic, free and a must see whilst in DC. Best at night and during the week when it's slightly less touristy. Highly recommend.
The grounds were very well kept. Even with the large amounts of visitors (including school groups and tour busses) the Information Center employees were very polite and helpful. Breathtaking monument when you see it in person.
The best view of Lincoln sitting so majestically is from outside the structure, looking up. Like so many other visitors I had an urge to get closer to the huge statue, but the stairs were a non-starter. A park ranger happened to walk by so I asked if there was an elevator and it turns out there is! It's to the left as you face the big guy.
