This is an iconic image of Washington and it does not disappoint. The statue itself is huge and it is very easy to access. There is no entrance fee. You will encounter lots of visitors wishing to see the monument and to take photos but...More

I was always so fascinated about this statue growing up and I finally had the chance to see it in person and I must say it's exactly how it is in films and pictures?

It's HOT! There are gnats. But none of that matters when you reach the top of the steps of the Lincoln Memorial! It's beautiful and a relaxing environment. I'm glad we went at night because it was a little cooler and we were able to...More

The views, history and feeling of this monument make it a must see. Plenty of shade, and space to sit on the steps.

I've visited this memorial several times before, however, this was the first time it was so packed that I decided not to enter! Beautiful views, however, and a great place to take pictures of the reflecting pool and Washington Monument.

Maybe one of the most iconic statues in the world. Standing there seeing President Lincoln sitting there looking quite calm gives you the feeling of Peace and Tranquility. It's quite an impressive work of pure art inside and out.

All these memorials are in one open space, beautiful and solemn environment. Worth to visit for one morning - 2 to 3 hours. Early in the morning is cool in summer time, and morning light is perfect for taking pictures. Go to the back site...More

A classic. The absolute best time to go is when the cherry blossoms are blooming, and at 5am, it sounds like a joke but it's not, at that time, the sun is rising, it's fairly quiet, the reflection on the water is clear, and everything...More

We stayed at the St. Gregory Suites On M and 21st. It had 2 doubles and a pull out couch which was great for the four of us. It is a little tired but reasonably priced. Location was great - near George town. And if you... More
