TransportationNational Park Service's Lincoln Memorial website with transportation tipsThe nearest WMATA metro stations are Foggy Bottom (23rd St. & I St. NW) and Smithsonian (12th St. & Independence Ave. SW). Please be advised that street parking near the Lincoln Memorial during public events is hard to come by. If coming from the DC suburbs, one option is to park at a WMATA station closest to you and then take the Metro to the Smithsonian or Foggy Bottom stations.
Activities for the dayFriendship Place's Annual Walk to End Homelessness is their annual event aimed at bringing awareness and resources to their work ending homelessness. The event begins at 9:30 AM when registration/check-in opens. Speeches from local dignitaries, homelessness advocates and supporters begin at 10:30 AM, followed by the walk itself at 11AM.
