5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

I don't think it would be a trip to DC without visiting the mall. Washington's monument is extrodinary to see.

“The views are great.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

They realy need to get serious about the grass here. Every once in awhile they plant seed and fertilize - then put temporary buildings on top of it and kill it. Ultimately it needs to be irrigated. Still there are some great views of the major monuments from the mall.

“Great sights in every direction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2012

You see the mall on tv (news, movies) but it's not like seeing the real thing.
