The size and width of Lincoln is amazing. It's truly a beautiful work of art. We visited during the day. Wish we had the time to see it at night.

If you are there in DC, Lincoln Memorial is one of the place to visit, very iconic and close to other museum, white house, monuments, memorial all in one place just walking distance from each other.

You see this on TV or the movies, but to stand in front of this is nothing like you have ever seen. It is so much larger than you think. It is beautiful. Other memorials are close to this.
