wonderful piece of our American history, and culture. Parking within reasonable walking distance can prove to be very difficult during the day. We finally found parking after sunset which worked out well. the memorial was well lit and nice to look at. turn 180 degrees and you get a great view of the Washington Memorial. The Lincoln Memorial is within easy walking distance of several famous memorials including the Vietnam war Memorial. don't visit Washington as a tourist without making time to see this awesome place.
Incredible monument and experience. It gets crowded with bus loads of tourists coming up but if you time it right you can get pictures or a nice view just by hanging around until the groups go back to the buses. It is all stone so slippery when wet so bring a good pair of shoes and a camera, you will want pictures here. You stand on the same step where Martin Luther King delivered his famous speech and look out over the pond towards the Washington Monument. Very cool piece of our countries history to one of our greatest Presidents. When I was there in November there were millions of lady bugs all over the marble pillars it was a cool sight.
Probably on of the most famous monuments in the USA to one of the countries greatest Presidents. The views across the City from the pediment are stunning and give good context to the various locations. The whole design, from the statue of Abraham Lincoln, the surrounding structure and its setting is inspiring. The inclusion of the Gettysburg Address on the internal wall is most appropriate. There is a small information centre built into the pediment, which includes a gift shop and a public restroom.2
This place was amazing. It was crafted very well, with the single beautiful color of white. The statue of Lincoln sitting on a chair inside was gorgeous, and on each side was either the Gettysburg address or Lincoln’s second inauguration speech. When looking outside from the Memorial, one could see the Washington Monument and the Reflecting Pool. If you looked hard enough, you could even see the Capitol. This place deserves 5 stars!
Beautiful place. So peaceful and historic. The architecture was awesome and amazing. The reflection pool is under construction and the cherry blossoms are almost out. Quite crowded but absolutely beautiful.
