“A site to see”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

So much to see and do throughout the National Mall. From memorials, monuments, museums, beautiful gardens, movies on the lawn, etc. A wonderful place to stroll, run, ride bikes, etc.

“stunning!”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

You can feel the history here just walking the National Mall and a beautiful walk it is with so much to see. From the Jefferson Memorial to the Capitol to the White House and many museums of the Smithsonian. You could easily spend a week here.

“Always a great spot to visit”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

So much to see and do and free or next to no cost. Walk the Mall, visit the Smithsonian Museums or Washington Monument (recommend you go online well in advance to reserve a spot for the Washington Monument tour), enjoy the city, sites, and people.

“A real must”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Everything is laid out in easy walking distance. This is all so well planned. You can easily walk from the White House, to the Lincoln Memorial and back to Capital Hill in a morning. There is so much to see and do thought that you could also spend several weeks here.

“A Great Space Suffering for Too Much Love”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

This is our national playground, and it's a great space. The views from one end to the other are stunning. Every American should visit. Much of the lawn is beat up from all the events and visitors. Restoration is under way. Bring plenty of water on a hot day!
