Welcome to National Mall
A nation is many things: its people, its history, its politics and its amassed knowledge. Somehow, each one of these is given architectural life on the National Mall, the center of iconography of the most iconic city in America. This is where the nation’s ideals are expressed in educational institutions, monuments and memorials. It's also where Americans come to protest, to rally and to watch presidents get inaugurated. A monument-studded park edged by the magnificent Smithsonian museums, this must-visit destination provides days – if not weeks – of enjoyment and edification for visitors.
