This massive and remarkable building was built to honor our 16th President in everything that he stood for. It is hard to imagine the risk and the courage that it must have taken to emancipate the slaves in those times. This is also the place...More

Defintely a must-see memorial. Renovations to take place - elevator, rest rooms, etc. Can you tell he was made by assembling parts?

We visited the Lincoln Memorial as part of a private tour and we got there about 11am. It was already busy and difficult to get photos without other people in them. The memorial itself is remarkable and the views are simply outstanding. I recommend going...More

I honestly don’t think that’ll be enough time for you to see all the monuments. I’d order a visitors guide off the website just so you can have a map of the area so you can plan everything out. Hope this helped some.

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. :)
