Read all the words on each side of the wall

He is our truth hero and one of the greatest founding fathers. The monument is always with many tourist and visitors, but it’s important to spend some time reading the passages on each wall. May we remember all the truth and wisdom.

Tribute to one of our nation's best presidents. You can also stand where MLK gave his famous speech. A must in DC!

The whole mall area is filled with fantastic history. The Lincoln Memorial is one of the top ones. Stand at the top and look across the Mall...priceless.

So awesome
Nov 2021
Seeing the Lincoln memorial was one of the highlights of our trip. Its very cool to stand and look up at this statue/monument. We saw this by day and then came back at night, both times we had amazing views and thoughts regarding this site. Turn around and across the reflection pool is the Washington monument. on each side is both the Vietnam and Korean war memorials. This is a MUST see!

mesmerizing
Nov 2021
We were a group of 5, all on rented scooters crusin' the monuments after dark. All of the monuments are breath taking during the day, but seeing them after sunset, dramatically lit. Wow. Growing up in CA, we see images of DC in our text books all of our lives, it gave me chills to be there in person. All monuments are spotless, not one piece of trash. We saw porter potties were available this time around. Convenient!

Simply beautiful place in the Fall, full of harmony and history. The walk to the nearby Martin Luther King Memorial is also amazing!
