Stunning and impressive! As for me, this is a must see. I recommend you take the time to simply read and ponder the statements at the Memorial. See it by day or night. I prefer the night. The lights make it very nice. Mr. Lincoln,...More

Stop here after the tourists leave, best after 9 pm. Lincoln really is best seen after the crowds leave and you can read his speeches on the walls. Don't forget to get your NPS passport stamped.
