The National Mall
As the nation’s capital, Washington, DC is a destination incomparably rich with American culture and history, and The National Mall is its main attraction. Located a short walk from the Capitol Hill Hotel, the extraordinary stretch of government buildings, monuments, and memorials is iconic and unforgettable.
Sights and Attractions
Among the most well-known attractions on The National Mall, there’s The White House, the U.S. Capitol, and the Washington Monument. The list goes on to impress with magnificent tributes in the Lincoln Memorial, Thomas Jefferson Memorial, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and Korean War Veterans Memorial. Moving on from American government-inspired National Mall attractions, it’s also home to the Smithsonian Institution. Arguably the most impressive museum collective ever, it includes the Smithsonian Castle, the National Air and Space Museum, and the National Gallery of Art.
Throughout the year, every year, the park plays host to a number of exciting and culturally rich events. For example, the annual 4th of July concert brings in some of the biggest names in music to perform for massive crowds alongside the most patriotic fireworks display there is. The National Mall also hosts tons of tours, reenactments, festivals, museum exhibit openings and much more.
