Located at the west end of the National Mall, the Abraham Lincoln Memorial is another must-see stop. The building itself is made from white stone that features 36 columns in front of the 19-foot-tall statue of Abraham Lincoln. The statue features the former president in contemplation and is flanked with inscriptions of his famous speech, the Gettysburg Address, as well as his Second Inaugural Address.
