Touring The National Mall
Instantly recognizable, the grassy swath of the National Mall is at the heart of the nation's capital. Surrounded by Washington DC monuments and museums, and steeped in history, the Mall has played host to some of the most important gatherings throughout the history of the United States.
Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his "I Have A Dream" speech here, and the Mall has long served as a gathering place for the public during presidential inaugurations. It's also adjacent to some of the top memorials to see in Washington DC, making it a convenient starting point for a tour of the nation's capital.
