"Almost all the important sites..." The National Mall Tip by tim123

The National Mall, Washington D.C.: 32 reviews and 30 photos


Favorite thing: Almost all the important sites to see in Washington D.C. are located along the National Mall. The mall is a long tree-lined park about 300 feet across and about a mile long. Along the sides are the national museums (nine in all, tenth coming soon), important government buildings, war memorials (to the Korean, and Vietnam Wars). In the middle in the Washington Monument, the White House to the north, and the Jefferson Memorial to the south. On the two ends are the Lincoln Memorial and the U.S. Capitol Building.

Fondest memory: My favorite part of Washington are the cherry blossoms which come out in March and April. They frame everything in beautiful hues of pink, white and red. It's an amazing sight to see!
