POI 1 Tour Image
The Lincoln Memorial
Ok! Ahead on your right is the Lincoln Memorial. It's the huge white thing with the pillars. It's the #2 attraction in all of Washington DC. Some of the first proposals for this memorial included a Mayan temple and a log cabin. There was also a disagreement about exactly where the memorial would be located. The speaker of the house at the time said, "I'll never let a memorial to Abraham Lincoln be erected in that damned swamp." Sorry, but that's where it is. Also, from standing at the Lincoln memorial and facing east, you can see the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool and the Washington monument. More about those later.

Place #2
Distance: 0.05mi , Attraction : Albert Einstein Memorial statue

Albert Einstein Memorial
On your left is a statue of a 12-foot-tall bronze guy sitting on a granite bench. That's the Albert Einstein Memorial. In his left hand, Einstein is holding papers that show his most important scientific theories, like E=mc squared and the theory of general relativity.
