Washington DC looks spectacular when lit up at night, so make the most of your time in the city by going on an evening tour on an open-air trolley. Going on an organized tour saves time working out local public transport, and means you can learn along the way through guide commentary. Tick off lots of top landmarks such as the Lincoln Memorial, the White House, the Washington Memorial, and more.

We've been on the Mall many times, but this time we decided to try a walking tour. We're so glad we did. It was so informative. We learned so much! Bob, our guide, was GREAT. He knew so much history and had great informative facts and stories that we never would have gotten by just walking the Mall by ourselves. Thanks, BOB!

The National Mall is a place in DC that just simply needs to be visited—no buts, no questions asked, no fits, period. It forms such a dynamic, crucial part of the US in terms of culture, history, politics, and economics, and it’s referenced to no end in movies, books, and all types of media. Even if you visit DC on a regular basis or intend to, all you have to do is stroll the National Mall once. Just once, to feel its significance and connect with the meaning of DC as a capital city. I’m genuinely not going to say more. The National Mall ranks alongside the Eiffel Tower, Taj Mahal, and Sydney Opera House (and others) as attractions you simply need to do at least once in life. Check it out!

The National Mall is a must see while visiting DC! It’s so spectacular to be at one end or the other and see the grandeur of this place. The architect of the mall sure knew how to make a statement!!!

The first place to visit while in Washington. There's monuments, museum, memorials and attractions everywhere. You won't have enough time to see everything this place has to offer unless you visit this city a couple of times. I had a wonderful time exploring this part of the city and will be back to discover more.

Let’s be straight up. The Smithsonian Museums, the National Gallery, the monuments & memorials on the National Mall are tremendous & mind-boggling. You want to see it all but the heat temperatures and walking expanse slow you down. I started at the original Smithsonian Castle w/ the Enid Haupt gardens. Stunning. Educational. Exotic. Enigmatic. You want to stay and read the label of each plant. You get garden envy and start dreaming of planting succulents, lavender, cacti, lilies & ornamental grass! I stayed longer and took too many photos. The museum exhibits were closed, but the NG West Wing was open w/ timed entry tickets on line.
