The National Mall is a great place to spend a few days seeing some of the best historical places and art the country has to offer.......and much of it is free! The Mall has the Washington Monument at one end at the Capital at the other. In between are many of the Smithsonian museums, the brand new African American Museum, the Native American Museum and the National Gallery of Art. Behind the Capital are the Supreme Court and the Library of Congress. Many are open from 10-5 and offer excellent free guided tours. If you want to watch the House or Senate in action, visit your representative's office and obtain free tickets. Security is tight but lines were short.
Visit! Soak in the huge, open space in the center of a busy and densely populated metro area. Feast on architecture and bath in the presence of history. This is where every patriot should contemplate the greatness of this nation. Oh and visit all the free (!!!) museums, galleries, and gardens. Google users and google administrators can't get the National mall right. The marker for the National Museum of African American History and Culture is still lumped together with the National Museum of American History and cannot be changed. I contacted google several times and tried several times but African American is not existent. Sad! Pictures are not connected to the correct museums and Mall pictures are often just museums picture. Again, I tried organizing those pictures but get overwritten by the overlords.
The National Mall is a great space in DC for visitors, locals, or protesters. For locals, it's a great place to run with a view of the Washington monument or the Capitol building. For visitors, it's a central stop for anyone looking to get the full DC experience since it's surrounded by monuments and museums. It's long enough that it's within walking distance to several metro stations, making it a perfect way to orient yourself in the city. For protesters, the Mall is an open area that allows groups to meet, march, and rally. There are portable bathrooms on the Mall, along with snack stands and a carousel. On the streets that intersect the Mall, you'll usually see food trucks parked. Tip for visitors: At various parts of the year, the Mall grass will get cordoned off to reseed the lawn.
Very historical. Always something to see. Be prepared to walk. Highly recommend the park service tour. The ranger guides have a lot of information that you might not be able to get any other way.
The place is beautiful. The museums and monuments are impressive. But if you want to see more than one museum in a day, plan for a long day. Most museums will have long waiting lines. Some have cafeterias. Plan where you want to eat. Most food places are several blocks away (average 20 min walk). There is a refreshment stand in the mall, but it's mostly hot dogs, fries and a drink. And it's way too much overpriced ($10 for a hot dog combo! Really? 😮 Consider the weather too. Public transportation is probably the best way to get there and there are many options. I find Metro the most convenient because the stations leave you right at the Mall.
