The reflecting pool is a very recognisable image from countless events and marches, especially well known for the site of the Martin Luther King “ I have a dream” speech. The reflection is either the Washington Monument or the Lincoln Memorial depending which direction you...More

Beautiful pool and walk between the Washington Monument and Lincoln. However, watch what time of year you go, because it can get dirty and full of smelly duck poop!

While the reflecting pool is a beautiful part of the National Mall and it's a very iconic spot, it isn't all that special. We visited during the winter so the whole thing was frozen and people were walking on it, which was sort of cool,...More

This fountain is right by the capital building. You have probably seen the area in movies and tv shows. You will likely see it on any trip.

The reflecting pool is a yucky green color and needs to be cleaned, changed, or something. It's a beautiful area in front of the Lincoln Memorial and such, so please fix it!

Great to see and a nice area to walk around. Best view of the reflecting pool from the Lincoln statue steps. Also water was a bit dirty when we went (sept 2017) but still worth the visit.

If it wasn't for the Lincoln Memorial or the WWII Memorial, this would just be a dirty old duck pond. The walk from the Mall area to the Memorial is nicer on the sidewalk among the trees (also cooler on hot days) than along the...More

Nice fountain with a small cascade and reflecting pool below. Got some nice photos in the evening light with the Capitol in the background. Just a short walk from Union Station.

Strolling around Washington DC I passed by the Senate Reflecting Pool and Fountain. I visited on a Sunday morning and found this place to be a nice and quiet part of the city. Worth dropping by if you are going to the Capitol Hill.
