I occasionally go here at night, sit on the steps, and just observe the reflection pool along with the Washington Monument in the night sky. I honestly think the experience is better at night. There’s usually college aged adults and small groups of tourists around even at 1am.
The Lincoln Memorial is worth seeing as it’s grandeur and has amazing views of the Washington Monument. Visit this masterpiece in both the day and night to fully experience the stunning views.
An impressive symbol of Washington DC we like to bike to. The famous "I have a dream" speech from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was pronounced there.
There are many memorials in this area. You can easily do a walking tour of them. This is one of my favorites.
I think the Lincoln memorial is the heart of the USA. Get up 20 minutes before sunrise, grab a coffee, use the free parking at the Washington mal till 7.30 and enjoy the sunrise sitting on the steps of Lincoln memorial.
