Love this monument! I host a monument bike tour and Lincoln Memorial is one of my favorite monument to go too. About halfway up the steps is the spot where Martin Luther King delivered his famous "I have a dream" speech. At the top of the stairs through the opening is a large statue of Abraham Lincoln seated in a hall. From the steps there is a good view of Mall and reflecting pool. Abraham Lincoln Memorial is a must see for anyone visiting DC. It's an huge iconic landmark in the nation's capitol.

We have traveled all 50 states and a good portion of the world and this is one of the most inspiring places we have been. This was probably about our tenth visit and we always linger, ponder, and give thanks for this giant of a man who led the way in saving this United States of America. His words show a oneness with all people and a malice toward none. His humility is a model for all of us.

Unequivocally my favorite of them all! I love the magnanimous feeling that comes over me as I walk up to this immense structure. Climbing those steps and finally being in the larger than life company of the man that is Abraham Lincoln. Feelings of courage and wisdom and valiance begin to seep into my core. Vision of 1865 stroll across my mind, and I am envious of that era in our history. So much occurred and so much was achieved. He was taken all to short but left a remarkable legacy for our country.

If you could only see one monument during a visit to DC, I'd say make it the Lincoln Memorial. Not only because it's so iconic, but even when it's very crowded at the height of tourist season it's still somewhat easy to navigate. Standing at the top of the steps you have a great view of the reflecting pool and monument, and the sides and back of the monument are often free of all but three of four people, providing a temporary moment of tranquility.
