National Mall:
Washington D.C.

by | Aug 4, 2023 | 0 comments

If you are in Washington D.C. for a short time I would definitely recommend walking through the National Mall as top on the list (aside for going to see the White House). Sorry if this is a disappointment but the National Mall doesn’t include any shopping, it is the name of a large grassy area with winding paths and well taken care of landscaping between the Tidal Basin and Constitution Avenue NW.

The area houses many iconic monuments such as the Washington Monument, the 555-foot marble obelisk tower- the tallest structure in Washington D.C. It was built to honor George Washington.

The World War II Memorial is an impressive stone structure with bronze sculptures and a huge pool of fountains. Additional memorials found at the National Mall are the Lincoln Memorial, Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial and the Vietnam Veteran Memorial. Each Memorial is designed in it’s own unique way with it’s own distinct role in honoring what it stands for.
