Magnificent monument in praise of a great leader! There is an elevator to the left of the stairs for those who can not make the hike. There is a small gift shop up top on the left side of Lincoln (left as if you were facing Lincoln).

It's hard not to imagine the dedication and history when standing in the steps of this memorial. The words of Lincoln and the standing place of Dr King was truly humbling

Who doesn't love Abe? He's bigger than life and so impressive. And the view from the monument looking down the mall is worth every step up.
