This place is neat with so many free activities surrounding it. Wear your walking shoes...bring a water bottle...and a way to get cool if it’s summer. Get a map first if you can of that area.

Plan out your trip. There is a lot to see and it's about 4 miles all the way around. Plan on a whole day for the experience, you won't regret it.

The National Mall is a must do for anyone visiting the Capitol of the United States. War, presidential, and civil rights memorials, each architecturally significant and symbols of ages gone by and promises of things to come, dot the landscape in a walking panoramic feast...More
