Not much to say that hasn't been said about the most iconic memorial in the US. We visited both at night and during the day and it was humbling both times.

My son was part of a high school band playing for the Parade of heros the Saturday before veterans day. Such a big honor. Its amazing durning day but breath taking at night. Must see for sure both by day and by night.

Not much to say about a statue but here goes. Its iconic, free and a must see whilst in DC. Best at night and during the week when it's slightly less touristy. Highly recommend.

This is a famous landmark you have to visit, if not because you without doubt couldn't avoid seeing pictures from it if you are older than 10 and live on earth. Quiet a view from the top facing away from Mr Lincoln too.

We visited the White House and there were disrespectful protesters shouting untruths about the US and our president. We walked to the Washington Monument and it was a great photo op. But everything else pales in comparison to the Lincoln Memorial. After viewing the beautiful...More

Julie and I were astounded at the crossroads of liberty and history at the Lincoln Memorial. Absolutely the most breathtaking, uniting, and emboldening monument in ALL of DC. Must Must See!!

Hello Bev, You got to spend at least 20 minutes at c each monument to absorb it. You should be able to cover all 4 monuments in 2 hours. I am including the walk time too and assuming that you will start at Vietnam memorial... More

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. :)
