Many museums, huge grounds, so many monuments and landmarks that are recognized worldwide. What an amazing work of planning. This was one ticked off the bucket list.

It's always a pleasure to come to the National Mall, whether it's to jog, walk, or see the many attractions around. I absolutely love taking pictures here, with either Congress or the Washington Monument in the background.

This place is essentially a large park with lots of historical tourist attractions/monuments. This is a great place to walk, run, bike, or picnic. There is at least one pond and also the famous reflecting pool. The National Mall holds things like the Washington Monument,...More
