To go !

Splendid place although a bit ruined by Inauguration Day's installations, but totally worth it. Don't miss the Martin Luther King's speech point !

So many great places to visit in DC, this is a must see for sure. I was able to see the Lincoln Memorial and many other sites in the same time frame.

A very special place in Washington and American history. Stand here and reflect not only on perhaps the greatest President, but also on what has been said and done at this sacred place. Think, for example, of Martin Luther King standing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, making his "I Have a Dream" in 1963. Or how Marian Anderson,... More

The Lincoln Memorial is quite impressive, and is a great place to go either day or night. I wnr at night recently, and it is awe inspiring. Somewhere there is a place on the floor commemorating where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave one of his speeches, but I did not see it. Also great views of the Washington monument... More

I visited this place twice. In the evening and in the morning. In the evening there were less people and better view. The white color looks bright and and gave a dramatic view. In the morning were crowded.

The Lincoln Memorial towers over the Reflecting Pool on the National Mall. When you stand directly in front, gaze at the handsome marble columns surrounded by greenery, part of a design inspired by ancient Greek temples. There are 36 columns, each one representing one state in the U.S. at the date of President Lincoln’s death. To the left of the statue... More

We visited the Lincoln Memorial over Easter break. While the crowds were awesome the importance of the monument and Lincoln were not lost on us. The views from the Memorial are incredible and discussing the marches and speeches with our boys was an important moment for us.

You can visit DC without stopping here. The views from all directions are amazing. Visit around sunset or late at night. The place is always full with people

Stunning, Chilling... You can not visit D.C. and leave this out of your itinerary. It is beautiful during the day and breathtaking at night.
