This is one the National Park Units. Disability parking is by the side roads and handles the other National Park Units. You will need about 1 hour to 1 ½ hour depending on how many people there are. There is side entrance is where the elevator to take you to the top area of where the Memorial of Lincoln is.

Yet again another big, famous, DC building. Again, nothing much to it. It is neat to see the big Lincoln sitting inside the entrance way carved from stone and sitting in his chair. Something to see once.

Get inspired by one of the greatest American leaders of all time. Many of his wise words are carved into stone by the impressive monument, from which you can enjoy spectacular views of the Capitol building, Washington Monument, and reflecting pools.

From my visits to Washington DC as a child, I most remember the Lincoln Memorial. It was here that I first felt a twinge of interest in American history take hold. My parents bought me a book of the US Presidents and I memorized the lot of them. I wish I had known more about Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War when I visited. Lincoln's most famous words are engraved on the walls. I wish I knew them.

American icon: the Lincoln Memorial. You can come to DC without walking through (and all around) this classic monument. Beautiful views of the reflecting pool, Washington Monument and the Potomac River, Memorial Bridge, Lee House and Arlington cemetery. Take a moment, pause, reflect. Especially elegant at night.

This memorial gets crazy crowded but is so iconic you have to go there at least once. It is lit up beautifully at night, but I like the cheezy photo ops during the day. Perfect tourist photo is from the top of the steps with the reflecting pool, Washington Monument and Capitol all in the background. Inside, Lincoln's Statute and Gettsburg address are just okay but sitting on the steps and contemplating the whole of Washington is fun.

For some reason, this was one of my favorite stops in D.C. The majestic giant statue of Abraham Lincoln is both impressive and intimidating, and at night the golden lights make it glow beautifully.

I love being able to see historical sites for free and the Lincoln Memorial is one of them! Make sure to wear tennis shoes because there is a lot of steps to climb. The place was crowded but that is probably the norm since it is one of the more famous sights to see.

The Lincoln Memorial is a popular place to kick back and relax along the steps of the memorial, especially after walking through the National Mall. I would advise going here when the sun is about to set.
