Savings alert: This stop is free.The Lincoln Memorial is one of the many monuments that are part of the National Park Service.This monument pays tribute to the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. Construction on this massive marble structure was completed in 1922, complete with a 19ft by 19ft solid marble statue of the President seated. If you recognize it from the back of a $5 bill, and thought it was impressive, then you should see it in person.Make sure you have comfortable walking shoes. There are a lot of stairs to climb.From the top of the stairs, you can have a great view across the reflecting pool back towards the Washington Monument and the WWII memorial. With the plethora of history in Washington, if one a trip, you MUST stop by and say hello to President Lincoln. He, like many of our presidents, have a very important part in our history.
