World's Most-Visited Tourist Attractions
No. 36 Lincoln Memorial, Washington, D.C.
Annual Visitors: 6,042,315
Getting advice from Honest Abe has been a popular pastime since this memorial’s dedication in 1922. These days, the Civil War president competes for visitors with FDR and Martin Luther King, Jr. (as well as Jefferson and Washington). But the appeal of standing beside Abraham Lincoln and gazing out at the National Mall across the reflecting pool remains as popular as ever. —Rich Beattie
