  • Visiting the National Mall was a great pleasure! The weather was nice and I was able to do a lot of walking. There were a lot of people but what major tourist place isn't crowded?! My favorite was the abundance of history and the many photos I was able to take! Everyone has to go at least once!

  • America! Just walking around you feel proud top be am American. The memorials remind you of what the cost is to have our great country. Free museums surround you. Walking around you see so many familiar sights. The cultural diversity is amazing. If you listen, you will hear many different languages spoken. Love this place. I still expect more of our elected officials, but it is interesting to see their place of work.

  • Always a great place when they have concerts or events! The folk life festival is often here and it is a great location to see the fireworks on the 4th of July! I also love how easy it is to get to loads of museums in the area from here. Great place to come if looking at local spots and to take pictures of the capitol. Definitely a great tourist spot.

  • Got here and there was no mall.... Thoroughly disappointed...... No mall at all.... Just this giant spike sticking up outta the ground. I mean, really.... Just a big monolithic spike! Just kidding.... We walked a late night walk from the white house to the Lincoln memorial..... It was the perfect time to do this. So calm and beautiful!!. Lincoln was the best part. The world war II memorial was beautiful too!
