Stunning by night and frequently less crowded, this is a great place to watch the sun set! Easy drop nearby for Ubers or the Circulator that goes around. Make time and for all the steps, take in the view and make sure to go around the back! Kid friendly, elevator available if needed for strollers. Stunning. Jews of the Washington monument as you look down towards the Capitol.

Beautiful. Even better than depicted on TV! Open to the public, evening at night. Part of the National Mall, just make your way around the different monuments/memorials. Also, there is a cafe/concession stand near this monument.

What everyone else knows, Abraham Lincoln is the best of the best, and it was an honor to have visited him three times in my life. Even in Covid times, masked visitors were in awe!

Seeing this in person was so powerful. Pictures do not do it justice. It was breathtaking. The structure is very big in real life. Seeing it on t.v. just doesn't show its size properly.

We enjoyed walking along the reflection pool! Sitting on the steps and enjoying a snack whiled taking in the views around us was absolutely incredible! We even came back at night and we loved the subtle glow and how Lincoln’s monument looked so peaceful! We definitely recommend visiting at night and seeing the monument lit up!
