National Mall Reviews & Ratings
I was wondering why was this place called the National Mall After a while I understood that every time I go to a mall, its because I want to go to different stores and get a variety of items. So this area a the jewel of Washington DC. It is loaded with lots of historic and public buildings. Museums like the Smithsonian and monuments such as Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, The Capitol, The White House. If you are looking for a place that embraces the richest part of the history of the United Stated, so this is the right place. The gardens are beautiful and invite the traveler to walk from one side to the other. You will probably need a whole week to visit each place in detail. Reservations need to be made in advance in order to get access to some buildings such as the Capitol and the White House. At some other places if you are lucky, you might get a ticket to get in. Most museums and monuments access is free and the best time to visit them is at the beginning of Fall or by Spring so you can also see the cherry blossom festival. National Mall should be visited without the pressure of a prepaid tour. You can plan a couple of days visit all by yourself. There are several hotels and apartments for rent. So there is no excuse to enjoy DC's Jewel.
It is a beautiful place, I would totally visit again! Lots of things to keep you busy and entertained. Also, check out one of the food trucks, some of them aren't that bad.
Huge space, famous museums and historic buildings flank it's perimeter. Food trucks cut through the middle kill the ambiance of a park. Food trucks lack imagination and are typical street door, nothing unique or remarkable.
It was amazing. Loved getting to take my son there. I definitely recommend the bus tours and if you want to go up in the Washington monument get there early. They start giving out tickets at 8:30 am
Great place for all Americans , black and white. We need to know our country's history in order to understand how it shaped our nation. This place takes you on a journey that leads you to understand this country
