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.
Tips from locals
I can't list all the monuments and museums on the National Mall, but trust me, there is PLENTY to do and see when you get there.
This a great a place to take pictures, ride bikes, go jogging etc. Highly recommend visiting!
I highly recommend spending some time at the national mall at night. The Lincoln and Jefferson memorials are especially breathtaking.
