National Mall and Monuments

The National Mall is America’s front yard, featuring the Washington Monument, WWII and Lincoln Memorials, 156 reservations, circles, fountains and more.

The long, grassy National Mall is home to iconic monuments including the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument.  At the eastern end is the domed U.S. Capitol, and the White House is to the north.

It’s also flanked by Smithsonian museums, and its lawns and pathways are often crowded with school groups, joggers and softball teams.   Nearby, the Tidal Basin reservoir is known for its blossoming cherry trees.
