    So chilling to see Lincoln at night, but be prepared for crowds in the summer. Travel guide - www.bikabout.com/washington-dc

    Did you know there's a museum beneath the monument? There's a ground level entrance to the left of the steps, or an elevator down from the top!

    Don't forget to read the Gettysburg Address, one of the most famous speeches ever spoken. It's on the left as you come in. Notice how it's written as a story. Lincoln was famous as a storyteller.

    Lots of construction happening around the memorial. I went with my mom and she had a hard time with the steps. We found out afterward their is an elevator to the left of the stairs
