Lafayette Square Reviews & Ratings

  • A nice place to walk around as you travel from the Mall to downtown. Pretty park and some nice statues. If you are up for it, walk around all the monuments around the Mall as well. Lots of photo ops all around this area.

  • It is beautiful and has many people milling about enjoying the park. The St. Louise Cathedral is wonderful! However, we didn't appreciate all the voodoo vendors there selling dolls to put a hex on Trump!

  • I always like the flowers grown here along with founding fathers statue and view of White House.😍 Best when cherry blossoms are there or even at falls

  • Wonderful place and enjoyed it very much! A very attractive place for tourists. Everything was awesome about this place.

  • Lights For Liberty rally for immigrant rights. Very well attended with inspiring speakers and songs. The names of all of the children who have died on the border over the last year were read off with how they died. Very moving.
