“Well worth the price”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

It is free ... well if you do not include our tax dollars. It is a beautiful tribute to our great country. We walked it different times. For a deeper perspective I would recommend one of the free walking tours. They are well done and you tip what you feel they deserve. Make sure you wear comfortable walking shoes as you will put on the miles walking the National mall.

“Enjoyed the green”
Reviewed 20 June 2014 via mobile

I really like the fact that they have managed to keep this area green and clutter free. The monuments would not be as beautiful if the area was developed. Enjoyed the space.

“A Surprise”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

When is a mall not a mall, well with no shops anyway. The National Mall is an amazing green space that connects all of the museums and monuments. Great to take some time to walk along the mall and take in the sights all around you.

“Difficult to move across such a vast space”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

The various building along the National Mall are all significant. It's nice to have a park-like space in the middle, but it's difficult to move from one place to another across the Mall.

“Most interesting place!!”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

The distance from Lincoln Memorial to the Capitol is less than 2 miles and it was easy to go wherever we wanted. The Memorials are ALL very special and very interesting and inspiring.
