No discussion of D.C. would be complete without mentioning one of the most loved and recognizable attractions the city has to offer: the Lincoln Memorial.
It's a truly beautiful building, and the outside is just the beginning. Walk up the stairs so you can see the statue of Lincoln, and check out the walls, where his Gettysburg address and remarks from his second inauguration speech are engraved into the marble.
There's more to the memorial than just the statue and engravings--there is a Lincoln museum under the memorial as well, and it's well worth a visit.
This was always one of my favorite places to visit, and I recommend you see it both during the day and at night, when it's all lit up and glowing. I like this site so much, I made it the setting of a pivotal scene in Deadly Contact :)
That's it for week two folks. Thanks for all your kind words so far. Be sure to come back on Monday, when we'll pick up with the letter M!
