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.
Consejos de personas locales
The National Mall is America’s most-visited national park. From the new, groundbreaking Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture to the historic Lincoln Memorial, there's so much to see. Dedicating just one day to this is essentially impossible!
This is what most people think of when they think DC--and for a good reason. Besides the plethora of museums, it is also a pleasant place to walk, picnic, or play outdoor games.
You can see that from the appartment complex and jog there (its like a 5mins drive or less)
Take the S bus, metro or ride-share a short way to the National Mall. If this is your first visit to DC, plan to spend the day at the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, US Capitol Building, the Jefferson Memorial and others.
This is the center of most sightseeing activities. Close to many major museums, national monument, capital building and more.

Exhibits include a flight simulator, an IMAX theater and the Einstein Planetarium. And parents beware: The three-level gift shop is huge, so get ready for pleas from your kids.”

“With more than 126 million artifacts on display, this robust Smithsonian museum on the National Mall attracts millions of visitors each year. Some of the museum's highlights include tarantula feedings in the O. Orkin Insect Zoo and the replicas of giant whales and other marine life in the 23,000-square-foot Sant Ocean Hall. You can also venture to the Samuel C. Johnson IMAX Theater for a show or the Butterfly Pavilion for some fluttery fun with multi-colored bugs. And no stop at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History would be complete without stopping by the David H. Koch Hall of Human Origins, which traces the history of human species over the past 6 million years and displays life-size models of early human faces generated using modern forensic techniques. While the museum's famous National Fossil Hall is currently closed while it undergoes renovations, dinosaur fossils can be viewed in "The Last American Dinosaurs: Discovering a Lost World" exhibit on the second floor.”

“More than 2,700 animals call the Smithsonian's 163-acre National Zoo & Conservation Biology Institute home, from Asian elephants to great apes to sea lions. While here, don't miss your chance to meet the zoo's most popular resident, a baby panda named Bei Bei who was born on Aug. 22, 2015. Also, be sure to look up every now and then as you stroll beneath the Orangutan Transport System (called the O Line): Chances are you'll spot orangutans swinging along cables between eight steel towers. Or, if you're more intrigued by the exotic animals native to South America, head over to the 15,000-square-foot Amazonia exhibit, home to creatures like titi monkeys and yellow-rumped caciques.”
