To my friends from overseas, no, this isn't some decadent three-storey shopping centre replete with Benettons, Victoria's Secrets and Banana Republics with parking as far as the eye can see.

The National Mall is green space in between many of Washington, DC's major must see activities. It forms the shape of a cross. Starting in the east is the Capitol Building. As we go west there is the Washington Monument. At its westernmost point, there is the Lincoln Memorial. Directly south of the Washington Monument is the Jefferson Memorial. Completing the cross is the northernmost point which is the White House. In between on either side of the Mall are the museums of the Smithsonian Institution.
