3. Lincoln Memorial and Reflecting Pool

Situated in Washington D.C, the Lincoln Memorial and Reflecting Pool is an iconic monument. It is perhaps most well-known for being the setting where Martin Luther King gave his most famous ‘I have a dream’ speech. Many visitors who have visited the memorial describe it as being a humbling, overwhelming, and impressive experience.

The reflecting pool is a truly spectacular and wonderful place to think about the things that are most important to you. It is worth noting that this landmark is one of the most crowded on the list so if you want to avoid the crowds it is best to visit either early in the morning or later at night.

Washington DC in general is a fantastic destination, packed full of attractions for the whole family. Other attractions you might want to check out include the popular National Gallery of Art, and the museums of the Smithsonian institute. While in town, be sure to also take a walk through picturesque Georgetown or bring the family to the National Zoological Park.
