Take time out to read both Emancipation Proclamation as well as Lincoln's 2nd Inaugural address! It is so much more surreal to stand there and read these.

DOn't just go to see the statue, read the words on the wall. Amazing! Also the view is great to see so many monuments and iconic places in one eye shot!

This was by far our favorite. The memorial and stature itself was amazing but when you walk out and look across you have a beautiful view of DC.

When you stand before the huge seated statue of Lincoln and your realize what he stood for, it makes you think about what a great man he was.

Who doesn't like the Lincoln Memorial? Beautiful views. Great photo ops. Read the words in awe. Walk around the back to view Potomac. Sit and contemplate.

If you are in DC this is worth seeing. Did you know that next to the stair kind of tuck back by the restroom is a small museum about the Lincoln memorial and its building. Be sure to walk over to the Korean memorial it very close.
