just some fields. it may be exciting when there are festivals or other celebrations, but really, nothing much to do except walk.

“It's completely different seen from the air.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

You don't realize just how huge the mall is until you've walked it. All the musueums I visit when I'm in DC are right there but at the end of the second block, I would have killed for a moped.

“So much to see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

It is surrounded by many of the Smithsonian Buildings with the Capitol at one end and the Lincoln Monument at the other. I am impressed by how many historic moments have occurred here. Frequently there are fun activites from the annual kite flying to the folk festival.

“Walking American History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Excelent Walk... A piece of advice, dont walk here with suitcases. There are little rocks along the whole path and it wont help carry suitcases very easily...

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Spend as much time here as possible!! So much to see and do. Obviously there are lots of museums but it is also a great place for a picnic on a warm sunny day or just sit back and people watch.
