Tons and tons of history here. It is a very busy and popular place. Be prepared for crazy traffic, difficulty finding a parking space and lots of walking. The buildings and views are great though, and there is a parking app you are able to use so you don't have to keep coming back to your car to feed the meter. The historical monuments and museums are well worth the trip.
The National Mall is cool. I live in DC so I've seen it my entire life. However, there's always something new to discover or rediscover. My favorite museum is the National History museum. My family and I just attended the 2017 folk festival on the Mall. We attended Circus Arts which was amazing! Just amazing. Wish they had this every year (They Do!)!
Great central location that's actually pretty QUIET. A lot of grassy areas to picnic, and play catch. Paved trails between make it a nice place to run or bike. Throughout the year, numerous events are held in various areas. 4th of July fireworks are great but packed. Come early, with food and activities to avoid stress. Lincoln side has the best view. You can sit away from the wash. monuments stage, loud busy area. Parking is always difficult. The walk from Smithsonian or Farragut stations might be a bit far to parts for little ones or those with troubles walking. But you can bike or taxi very easily in the area
Always a great place to visit. Many people think it is part of the Smithsonian, but it is not! If it is super hot or cold (depending on the season) outside, take advantage of the underground concourse that connects the east and west wing!! There is always something new to see, even if you think you have seen everything! Read up on the story of how it was started!
Omg, so much to do. Gorgeously maintained with a ton of museums all within easy walking distance from the metro. We stopped here for a day trip. Unfortunately, a lot of the museums we wanted to see were closed, but we still had a great literally day. We were surprised by the little touches. Beautiful landscaping and little hidden spots to sit in the shade on a bench and look at the fountains. Really can't wait to go back!
