Lincoln Memorial - Review
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, Washington D. C. Reviews
What an awesome place. As a tourist I found the monument to be incredible. The size and beauty of the memorial is breathtaking. Standing at the top of the stairs looking over the reflection pond and beyond is a humbling experience. There are always a lot of people, so be mindful of the fact that you won't always be able to get the best photo. There is a hole-in-the-wall shop inside of the monument with some great books and souvenirs.
As Canadians seeing the Lincoln Memorial was a fascinating experience. Standing in the memorial was certainly wonderful. The memorial is enormous and in many ways reflects the grand way in which Americans view their history and their country. Abraham Lincoln had such a huge and profound impact in American history. His leadership changed the direction and the future of America, and as a result the world. The Memorial is vast and almost diefies Lincoln in it's grandeur as it reminds the tourist of Greek temples dedicated to their gods. Whatever a person feels about this fact visiting the Memorial is an experience one will not forget!
It's a beautiful place. We went at night and it was very crowded. But still it gave a nice peaceful feeling to the mind. Everyone visiting DC must see this place! It's right across the street to the Washington Monument. Lincoln statue was majestic. Lot of stairs to climb though! It will be difficult for the disabled people to reach the statue.
A must see place for visitors. Very attractive, beautiful, and peaceful place. Although there are hundreds of people, the place is surprisingly full of vibes of peace and tranquility. I attribute it to the great president. The statue of the great soul is so lovely and lively that you do not feel like leaving. In front of the Lincoln Memorial is a reflecting rectangular pool. This beautiful rectangular pool is the largest in Washington DC. The pool looks exhilarating with the Washington Monument on the east. My friends and my wife enjoyed as much as I did.
What can you say but that it’s a beautiful tribute to a good man. 😊 It’s an impressive structure. Much bigger than I thought. Hope you’re good with going up stairs cause there’s plenty. But it’s a journey well worth the climb. It was a very very busy day I went and it was raining at the time and everyone was taking shelter with Abe! Also would be cool to see at night. Maybe another night, another road trip.
