Some interesting displays may be enjoyed at this very old museum on the National Mall. Be prepared for heavy crowds. Viewing the Hope Diamond is a favorite.

This enormous mall is a beautifully laid out part of DC. It affords great views of the Capital and the Washington Memorial. You can just relax, enjoy the food trucks, take a museum break or rent a bike.
