Stretching from the foot of the Capitol past the Washington Monument to the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials, the National Mall celebrates our nation's history. The Mall is in disrepair, reflecting years of neglect. Save this historic memorial of our nation’s history at www.NationalMall.org.
Transportation to the National mall is easiest via Metro (take the Green/Yellow line to the Archives-Navy Memorial-Penn Quarter stop) or via Bus (take any of the S buses south toward downtown and ask the driver to recommend the closest stop).
National Mall is a very classy mall. A lot of trendy and high end brand stores will be found there. There are always events going on in D.C. so be sure to leave early in case parking garage is full.
