Monumental and inspirational
At the heart of Washington, DC is the National Mall, a two-mile expanse of celebrated monuments and memorials from the U.S. Capitol Building to the Lincoln Memorial. On this stretch of National Park, there’s also the Washington Monument as well as the Vietnam Veterans, the Korean War, the World War II and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorials. Explore freely on foot, take a Bike and Roll guided bicycle tour or glide around on a Segway.
For inspiration, look no further than the Smithsonian Institution, the world-renowned museum and research complex of 19 museums, galleries and a National zoo. With almost 140 million objects, works of art and specimens, there’s everything from the history of art to the future of flight – and all with free admission.
