Review of: Lincoln Memorial
The variety of stones would be enough to warrant a return visit. The statue of Honest Abe fills one with the awe worthy of our greatest president. My son and I were in DC for three days. All three days we went to the Lincoln Memorial for sunset and into the night. There were a lot of people and the energy was peaceful and calmly inspiring. You can read his two greatest speeches on either side of him, carved into the stone walls. The restrooms are downstairs, and a small, wonderful museum is downstairs as well. Standing on the steps overlooking the reflecting pool is one of the great experiences one can have. One can feel many great moments there, like Marian Anderson singing "My Country Tis of Thee."

It was amazing and emotional to visit the Lincoln Memorial. I highly recommend this memorial to all Americans. We visited on January 14th, and we were not sure which sites would be open considering the security precautions with the upcoming inauguration. We found on-street parking behind the memorial, and then just walked right up to it.
