Lincoln Memorial

2 Lincoln Memorial Circle Northwest

This titan of our national heritage grew up as a poor boy on the frontier. Reading books by candlelight, whether after long hours at school or on the farm, proved invaluable to young Lincoln. He later served as a store clerk, a river trader, and a "rail-splitter" used to hard physical labor. A plain speaker for plain folks, Lincoln blended his love of the written word with a strong work ethic and pursued a legal career, then a political one from the Illinois state legislature to the U.S. Congress. Here was a man who aspired to lead a nation

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.

A great Monument paying tribute to a great president. I have been seeing his status on tv and books. And guess what? it's just here right in front of me I just can't believe this. It is just breathtaking....the place is extremely busy even on a weekday's. There were a ton of people there when I visited. Fabulous views down the National Mall to the Capitol Building. One of the most amazing experience.

What a nicely kept memorial. Head here during the week for a much quieter, slower paced tour/viewing. The weekend brings lots of families with kids and tours. It makes things difficult for up close a d quiet viewing. Early and during the week is best! The view from across the reflecting pool is awesome.

A great Monument paying tribute to a great president. This place is extremely busy in the middle of the afternoon. If you want to come and get pictures before all the Taurus and crowds arrived you should try to come as early as possible. Fabulous views down the National Mall to the Capitol Building.

The memorial was beautiful and very crowded. The Lego display was nice especially see the miniatures of the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument. There are lot of stairs but if taken with pauses not too bad. Seeing the craftsmanship of the carvings was wonderful. What an awesome display of American workmanship. The reflecting pool was nice but we could not walk along it because the paths were closed due to the Fourth of July week. Made the walk between the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial extra long. There are no vendors close so advise taking water with you on a hot day.
