    The WM is closed until spring 2019. But you can still do a walking tour to see the monuments and museums around the National Mall. If you love history and our country then you won't be disappointed.

    Very scenic, probably one of the best spots in DC. Lots of history, and often the center of protests, political movements and activity. Near lots of fun and entertaining things to do.

    National Mall is a hot mess of construction until January 2016. Smithsonian Metro still open but entrance hidden by fencing.
