Amazing experience absolutely loved going here to see the monuments/museums and best part it was free.It was an incredible experience being here. You can't help but feel a sense of patriotism as American when you're here. The monuments and memorials make you feel a sense of the gravity of the sacrifices that had to be made throughout their history.
The National Mall is something every American should see and visit. There are so many monuments, tributes. museums and so much history to see and learn about our country. There is so much to see, it takes several days to see it all. Crowds can be very heavy during the summer months. Due to the amount of walking (about 10 miles from one end to another) I recommend wearing a very comfortable pair of shoes or sneakers. There are also many different types of food trucks lined up along the mall for a quick bite. Average meals are about $10.00 per person. There is no charge to enter the museums. The best way to travel to the mall when you get tired is by either bus ($1.00 each way from one end to the other) or the DC Metro train (varies from originating location). From our hotel in Alexandria Va. (about a 30 minute ride) My wife and I paid $6 each round trip via train. The trains and stations were very clean.
The perfect place to walk around and see many sights of DC. Gravel pathways make it easy for stroller pushing and the abundant food trucks give you plenty of options for lunch. When there isn’t an event going on, there is lots of room for kiddos to run around and have fun. We enjoy just walking the paths and looking at the buildings.
This whole area is spectacular. It's jam-packed with historical things to see and experience including monuments, memorials, museums, buildings and even restaurants & hotels. The best way to experience is to simply walk around the area, taking in the sights, the history and the space. One day is simply not enough to experience everything here.
I went to the mall with family (I was in the area for Thanksgiving). First off, the buildings are spectacular. Like so many wonderful buildings in our nation's capital all of the architecture was beautiful. We were there for almost 2 hours. We had a great time. I hope to return the next time I am in town. Highly recommended.
