The Lincoln memorial is one of my favorites. Lincoln is very imposing sitting in his large chair, but the quotes in this exhibit are also inspiring. It is situated between several other memorials and provides wonderful views of the reflection pond down to the Washington monument.

Not really anything to write except if you visit DC and don't visit Abe...what are you doing? Take a picture from the lowest level, to the left for a great post card photo.

...If you're lucky there won't be a huge crowd when you visit. The architects clearly understood the site, it can be shockingly beautiful at the Memorial whether you're at the bottom of the steps looking up at the 16th president or at the top of the steps looking at the Reflecting Pool and the Washington Monument. The statue is a... More

Washington DC is a remarkable city to visit. There are numerous venues to suit everybody in the family from young to older. Great place for couples as well. You need to plan your itinerary before you go. Although most of the venues are free to visit it is worthwhile to buy advanced timed tickets for a nominal fee ($1.50). It... More

I love Washington DC and make it at least once a year. The Lincoln Memorial is worth seeing any time, but especially in the evening at sunset. The view of the skyline is breathtaking.

When you look at the memorial, seen so many time on TV, in person, there is a feeling that you are in the presence of a great man. When you read his words, they tell you a story that makes you wonder if he had not be assassinated, how would the country have changed.

As the child of a Roosevelt New Dealer I have lived in DC my entire life. In a word growing up in the spotlight of the world has been nothing sort of inspiring. By far the most timeless sight is the Lincoln Memorial. It is not the biggest, or the most imposing, or even the most informative. It just exudes... More
