I recommend walking and visiting most memorials, but bring comfortable walking shoes. Even better at night.

It's amazing. Definitely worth seeing but if you go in summer, be warned. It's stupid crazy hot inside. We lasted about 3 minutes. Took loads of pics in that time and will look at those to remember what it was like.

At the end of the Mall, you can climb steps up to this enclosed monument and read the words to both the first and second inaugural address. Fantastic.

you can park on any streets around the memorial area, regular street parking, but read the signs, they can get quite confusing.
