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.

Lincoln Memorial Reviews & Ratings
Amazing! So much history stands before us! President Obama and so many others addressed our nation from there! Be prepared to climb all 58 steps to see this magnificent tribute to President Lincoln and two of his most famous addresses! View is breathtaking from the memorial. Gift shop is small but has excellent selection of materials; not touristy. Ladies who are in charge are personable and helpful!
I love this place because this place is full of history that you can actually see, touch and reminisce and imagine. This place is better then history books and a history class. You can actually walk right through your history. All the monuments are awesome. The land and location is clean and beautiful. If you never been you MUST go.
Impressive construction. Besides the historical significance, very clean, peaceful . Restrooms are located at ground level. Elevators available if you don't like stairs. Taking the stairs is not that bad. Colorful crowds all the time. Make time to read the walls!
One place you must visit if you are in Washington DC. It's very busy but it's such a beautiful monument and place. Very nice still and the trees had all this very colorful leaves that made it even better. Take your time and enjoy the place, so much to learn and reflect on.
Absolutely beautiful! I recommend visiting in the spring. Preferably when the cherry blossoms are in bloom. It makes the area so bright and beautiful. It's also not as hot, which is ideal when you are doing a lot of walking!
