Certainly this is one of the "biggies," but definitely worth a visit. Climb the steps and notice the details of the monument. For example, the text of Lincoln's second Inaugural Address in 1865 is carved along the inside walls. Finally, turn around and enjoy the view of the Reflecting Pool, the Washington Monument, and the Capitol.

Address: 23rd Street, NW
Directions: Located at the western end of the National Mall, facing the Reflecting Pool, the Washington Monument, and Capitol Hill.
