The massive National Mall, the centre of Washington DC, host to the best memorials and museums of the nation, the power centre of US politics.

There is so much to see, that even a week devoted to this place will not be enough. Short on time though, I was forced to do it in a fraction of that time. Nonetheless, I was blown away at the audacity, the scale of this place. Perhaps no other place on earth comes close that can pack so much culture, education and entertainment into one place. But the National Mall does this easily.

A must visit destination for anyone around the world.

My husband and I went together alone from our five boys and stayed at the Holiday Inn right around the corner from National Aerospace Museum. We went for a five day trip and still did not see everything. Felt so patriotic and Proud to be an American.To walk on stones and paths where many famous historical figures exactly walked was thrilling. Everyday we got up excited for another adventure so much to take in, so many things to see and do. This was by far one of our very favorite trips top five of 33 years of marriage.

it's beautiful, all the Smithsonian Museums, the art galleries, the Capitol building, the WWII building, the Washington Monument are on it. During the summer, the Smithsonian Folklife festival is held on it, which is very worth visiting.

What a way to spend the day! There isn't enough time to see everything in a weekend, that's how jam packed this place is with things to do. If you stand in the center you can see the Capitol, Washington Monument, White House, Jefferson Memorial, and the Lincoln Memorial. There is a lot of walking if you want to see even half of these. The distances are decieving between them, so be prepared.
