Lincoln memorial is a must do when in DC. Night time is great there as Honest Abe lights up and looks amazing. We also did the Vietnam Memorial the same night as it’s a short stroll there.

Of the many, many monuments to see, this one has figured in a lot of protests, rallies, marches and the like, that it's probably a must-see.

A must for any visitor to DC. Make sure you go all around the monument and take in the historic ambience

One of the highlights of the guided moonlight bus tour by USA guided tours, led by Christopher, the best and “one of the youngest” guides in DC

We loved the Lincoln Memorial. Make sure you do it with a tour guide. There is so much information you would not know unless you are with a guide.

It is. But D.C. is worth spending more time in. If you also want to visit some of the museums, you should plan for some days. Enjoy your stay. It is a nice city. :)
