It was suggested that we view Lincoln from the sides, not just the front. So impressive! Close to Viet Nam Memorial and Korean Memorial.

It was as awe-inspiring as I remembered as a child. We saw it lit up at night and it was less crowded and even more moving. Not to be missed!

Washington DC has lots of man-made monuments but this is probably the most majestic one. Lincoln is by far the most famous of all US Presidents. His larger than life statue is very imposing. We learnt about his well-known speeches carved into murals around the...More

Take the time to climb the steps. Take in the view once you are at the top. It is safe to visit anytime day or night. Very inspiring!

Very clean and will lit. A must visit when you come to DC. The view from the Lincoln Memorial is one that you can't put into words and must see for yourself.

We visited this site twice in June 2018. We did a walking tour during the day which was a 4 hour walking tour. Well worth doing as you walk around so many interesting sites and the guide talks about so many interesting historical facts. During...More

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. :)
