National Mall, Washington DC

(4.4/5 based on 5,000+ reviews on the web)
Visit National Mall, the historical national park where Martin Luther King Jr. gave his "I Have a Dream" speech. The park contains the Washington Monument and spans the region between the Lincoln Memorial and the United States Capitol. This park hosts numerous recreational activities, festivals, and concerts, but is most appreciated as a site for historic political rallies and gatherings, such as the Vietnam War Moratorium Rally in 1969. Millions of people visit the park annually to stand in the place where Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous speech, and every four years Americans flood the park to watch the Presidential Inauguration.

  • The National Mall is a must when in DC. There is so much history here and great photo opportunities..  more »
  • So many things to do and see. Be prepared to walk a lot. Hope you went early one museum can easily take 4 hours. Refreshment stands are expensive and they don't have bathrooms near by. Check mall maps...  more »
  • A trip to Washington without walking the Mall would be a great mistake. So many iconic memorials and moments in history have been recorded in this area.  more »
