The gigantic stone Statue of Abraham Lincoln sitting on a seat is a beautiful monument to visit in Washington D.C. The lovely statue of the beloved president is an imposing sight to see.
The facade of the building is made up of Corinthian columns and within it sits the figure of Lincoln. There is a very serene expression on his face. The monument is simple and yet very impressive. Overlooking a beautiful pond and surrounded by trees, the place is certainly a delight for the eyes.
The place is also historically very important. The famous speech presented by Martin Luther King Juniorcalled “I have a Dream” had this famous monument as its historic backdrop.

This was on my "Must see in DC" list, for obvious reasons. Civil Rights Icon, historic figure & monument. Standing next to the actual Lincoln Memorial is surreal. It makes you feel small, literally & figuratively, because the marble monument, much like the man himself, is ginormous. Awe-inspiring, leave with your jaw open AWESOME. The Lincoln Memorial is a great place to witness history. Beautiful Statue of our Former President Lincoln sitting in his chair. There was a nice place to eat at as well. The whole experience was good to me.
The whole memorial is done well. The architecture and the statue are amazing to see. Inside of the memorial is not overly done up, but its simplicity aids in conveying the importance of what the memorial stands for. Great views from the steps back towards the Washington Monument and the rooms downstairs are great to see if you enjoy learning about the history of the monument. Inspiring.
Free, an iconic location, iconic man. Did I say free?? I recommend you park somewhere cheap and rent a bike for the day as there are many places to view. Although waking is also pretty cool. Amazing place to bring the kids. Open 24 hours and.... Free!
One of the greatest monuments ever created! Very uplifting experience to be with a giant marble statue of Abraham Lincoln and to read some of his famous speeches on the walls. Also, can stand at the very spot where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr gave his infamous "I have dream..." speech, right in front of the memorial, over looking the picturesque reflecting pool with the Washington monument as the backdrop. Highly highly recommend!!!
Beautiful place, monumental! No other way to put it. Must say that some visitors and tourists need to read the sign before feeling offended, but the signs says be respectful and stay quiet. If the police approaches you and asks you to follow the rules, don't complain but comply. Great place to visit when it's cold!
