    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.

    Walk all the way around and you can get some quiet time away from the crowds. Taxis are easy to find, way more than Jefferson Memorial
