Pictures don't do it justice!

This was just so brilliant to see in real life! Much bigger than we expected... and really steep steps getting up to it. So cool!

Four score and seven years....the Gettysburg Address is so memorable. We were able to enjoy this attraction. We parked on a bridge and walked over to it. It is difficult to get to with a car.

Imposing statue of Lincoln with excerpts from to his famous speeches. Good view of the mall. I wouldn't say was overly impressive as there's not much there but it's a good starting point and a good overall view of the area

Not sure it would be accessible to handicapped. But of course a must see. It is iconic and it makes you proud to be an American

Best thing about DC is you can roam around all these cool places without anything to pay. me and my husband have a cool picture here. We have been to this place thrice already!! Again planning in May. You can see Washington monument, Reflection pool from here and that gives a nice view.

This monument touches your heart with history and the struggle of the US at his time. You will be in awe to sit and read his second inagural speech.

Go early, go often. As dignified and stately as you imagined. Grab a coffee and a bagel and eat breakfast on the steps before the throngs arrive.

I've visited the Lincoln Memorial before; impressive then and even more impressive now. It is such an incredibly beautiful memorial and so grand. You don't realize how large this is from pictures and TV until you are standing there and feel how small you are in its presence. This was one of the stops on a tour we took so... More

Standing in front of this monument was nothing like seeing it on TV. The sight and art around it reminds one of all the sacrifices made for the freedoms we enjoy and moves one to tears. The beauty and majesty of this place is astounding.

Startling statue of a large sitting Lincoln. Gettysburg address and Second inaugural address engraved on the wall.
