    If you stand on the 2nd level step, you will be able to see on the floor Martin Luther King's I HAVE A DREAM plaque on floor. You'll be standing where history took place! AMAZING!!

    Fun to visit and you can bike around the national mall. I enjoyed the grandeur of this and faint memories of my trip during middle school. trying to find the typo in future in the Gettysburg address!

    To the left of the steps is a little museum. In the back of there is an elevator that can take you up to (or down from) the memorial, if you can't climb the stairs or don't feel like it.

    Lincoln Memorial is always beautiful at night. I try to take any visitors to DC on late night tour of all the monuments. It's also a great way of avoiding the tour bus crowd.
