There is nothing quite like the Lincoln Memorial. Anywhere. The setting and design of the temple, Daniel Chester French’s statue, with excerpts from his Gettysburg and Second Inaugual speeches on the walls, left and right. Turn around for a sweeping view of the National Mall

It is. But D.C. is worth spending more time in. If you also want to visit some of the museums, you should plan for some days. Enjoy your stay. It is a nice city. :)
