Parts of an iconic image of the capital city, Lincoln Memorial have been the site of some defining moments in American history. Overlooked by a marble Abraham Lincoln, the pool complements the monument's classic architecture, noted for its 36 fluted Doric columns. Martin Luther King delivered his famous "I Have a Dream" speech here, and the site has since hosted dozens of other social and political events. The monument is open to the public 24 hours a day, so consider stopping by at different times to fully appreciate the building's architecture, the views across the 600 m (2,000 ft) long reflecting pool, and Lincoln's stony gaze. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Washington DC holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Lincoln Memorial and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

The Lincoln Memorial is my favorite place in DC. I especially recommend a visit at night, the reflecting pool and view up to the Capitol building is unparalleled.
