Okay, here are a few pointers and tips on how to handle your day(s) here at the National Mall.
1: Unless you are walking distance from the Mall I recommend you dont take your car and attempt to park there, take the metro it is a lot faster and easier to get to and from your hotel.
The first day to the Mall we took our car and i'm not even lying, it took us an hour to find an empty parking spot.
So the second day we got a metro pass and it was MUCH easier, it pops you out right in the middle of the mall. PERFECT!
2: Depending on the age of your kids it's good to take small little breaks in between your walking. There is a lot of walking to do there.
3: You need at least 4 days there if you really want to see everything around the area. Take your time and take it all in.
4: Another good tip is to get the hop on and hop off busses, they give a great tour and drop off at great stops. It's also a good rest from all the walking.
Overall it's a great time!! Highly higly recommend it!
