The Martin Luther King Memorial is a giant statue of the brilliant man who has been one of the most influential figures in relation to equality in the United States. The memorial pays tribute to a truly amazing personality. The statue or rather the monument is built on the basis of a small saying in King’s famous “I have a Dream” speech that goes “Out of a mountain of despair, a stone of hope.” This part has been carved in the stone too. His figure has been carved out of stone making the structure very symbolic.
17 quotes from his various writings and speeches have been put up on the inscription wall. The atmosphere of the place and the memory of this amazing man are both truly inspiring. Do certainly put this one on your must-list.

The Martin Luther King Jr memorial was one of my favorite stops during our vacation. As an immigrant I truly love what this man did. If you're in the area definitely stop by and enjoy this beautiful memorial. We all have a dream for a country without racism and hate and only a world full of love and peace. ❤
One of the most amazing, thoughtful memorials here. The concept of a man breaking out of the mold to stand alone is a beautiful thing. I have wanted to visit this since it was build. Amazing to see in person.
Absolutely stunning! The design and placement is over all beautiful. Right by the water and with beautiful gardens. This is a must see memorial! They did a great job with this one! The memorial wall with his quotes light up at night time as well. The pictures do no justice for what you see in person.
Beautiful place to go and tour. Had a great time while I was there. Also saw some ducks swimming in the lake nearby.
Definitely a must see spot for anybody coming to DC. Very peaceful place. Be sure to read all of his famous quotes on the wall.
