A very amazing place to visit. Understated but hard to put into words the impact. People get oddly quiet walking around the memorial

Honest Abe still doesn't disappoint! Incredible monument and very well done! He faces the Washington Monument and the Korean & Vietnam Memorials on a short walk on either side

While I really thought it would be bigger, it was awesome to see the Lincoln Memorialin person. Be prepared to climb a lot of steps....so many steps! They do have ramps available for wheel chair access.

I enjoyed my visit to the Lincoln Memorial, aside from the fact it was pouring rain the day we went. It is very busy with lots of people around, but the architecture is amazing. I recommend seeing it.

It is a tremendous monument as well as the top of the stairs providing an amazing view of the reflecting pond and Washington monument. When we went on Monday morning, we also saw about 100 Marines drilling. Made me proud to be an American!!!

This monument is truly inspiring and moving. It makes one take a step back and realize how far we’ve come as a nation and the sacrifices that we’re made. Beautiful views from the top of the steps also.

It was a humbling experience to stand in front of the Lincoln memorial. We visited it twice, once on foot and once on a guided moonlight tour which I highly recommend. It’s incredibly beautiful at night and there were far less people too. A must...More

We visited the majority of monuments along the mall and this was well worth going to the far west end for. Highly recommend visiting.

There's parking on either side of the Lincoln memorial, but it is very limited. We mostly used uber and "the hop on hop off" bus the whole time we were there.
