If you're visiting Washington for few days or for longer period you can come everyday to have a walk on the mall. This big park (maybe 2/3 miles long) pass through the most important attractions of the city: from the United States Capitol to the Lincoln Memorial. Museums, memorials, monuments and the White House are on the sides of the... More

It was great walking through the National Mall. It was interesting to see all of the things that were surrounding it exactly how huge it was. It's definitely a must see on any visit to Washington. As the months getting warmer they'll be more activities. Great place to get in some exercise and lots of fresh air it was great!

Well worth the visit. Be ready to do some walking! Beautiful and impactful sites and memorials. Everyone should try to visit at least once to see how spectacular our history of the US has been reflected in its National Mall!

If you go to the Capitol Hill, you should take a walking tour on the National Mall. Really nice place to spend an hour or two. All the attractions are around. Take your chance to pay a visit to monuments and museums around you.

A great way to spend a sunny Saturday, visiting many of the attractions along it's path. Too many places to see and visit so I would recommend several days exploring the area. Great for people watching as well, lots of food trucks should a snack be required.
