    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

    At the top of the pedestal on either side of the main staircase you’ll find Big Steps. Sit on them, stare from Lincoln to Washington, and think about one thing you love deeply.
