I spent about a week solo-traveling in DC. Sitting on the mall reading and people watching is one of my favorite travel memories. Don't get so caught up in the museums you miss the mall!

There are so many things in the mall that it is practically impossible to cover everything in 2 days. Luckily for us, we moved to stay close by and therefore we have been covering 1-2 places during each visit. The place a feel of grandeur...More

Not just the National Mall, but the whole of DC was very clean, well-lit, marked well, and free of homeless people. Even the metro was clean as a whistle--no graffiti, no vagrants lolling around in the underground passages. There was great police presence and I...More

This area was very open and had lush green grass, but there was a lot of construction going on right in the middle, but I think it was to get ready for an upcoming exhibit.

The Mall is the center of it all. Jefferson, Smithsonian, Capitol building and more. You can spend all day sight seeing, watching people, and visiting museums. Must must place to spend an afternoon.

The mall was beautifully kept. The grass was green, the paths were clean. There were so many great spots where you sit and eat lunch without destroying the grass and there were also spots where some people did not care.

My last visit showed the grass and overall surroundings to be pretty miserable. They have taken years to resod the grass, clean up the paths, and make the mall a true representation of the sort of place to be in the middle of the capitol....More

This is a treat, indeed. I was surprised we had something so magnificent, it rivals the attractions in Europe that are hundreds of years old!
