Iconic Attraction

Our Take

Set in between the Washington and Lincoln Memorials, the Reflecting Pool is a beautiful place for a stroll. During your visit, keep in mind the historic protests and rallies, particularly events important to the Civil Rights Movement and the Vietnam War, that have taken place here. It’s cool to watch footage from them before or right after your visit. You’ll definitely want to stop and take a moment to soak in the fact that you’re walking where history was made.

The Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool is the largest of the many reflecting pools in Washington, D.C., United States. It is a long and large rectangular pool located on the National Mall, directly east of the Lincoln Memorial, with the Washington Monument to the east of the reflecting pool. Part of the iconic image of Washington, the reflecting pool hosts many of the 24 million visitors a year who visit the National Mall. It is lined by walking paths and shade trees on both sides. Depending on the viewer's vantage point, it dramatically reflects the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, the Mall's trees, and/or the expansive sky.
