Why locals recommend it
The National Mall is basically Washington DC’s backyard – it’s a grassy lawn where visitors and locals hang out on sunny days. Full of world-class museums (we’ll get to this later) and fun festivals, the National Mall is the center of many activities in the city.

All the Smithsonian museums and most monuments are along this promenade. When the weather's nice, you'll see food trucks, picnics, ultimate Frisbee, or even soccer.

Amazing place with so much history- great to go at night when all of the monuments are lit up.

Drive for a few minutes and see the Washington Monument rise majestically to the sky, surrounded by the stately U.S. Capitol Building at one end and the dignified Lincoln Memorial at the other, it’s hard not to think of America’s history.
