The National Mall: Memorials, Monuments & American HistoryStretching nearly two miles between the Capitol and the Lincoln Memorial, The National Mall is a compilation of open area gardens, fountains, trees and the Nation's most renowned monuments and memorials. Nestled in the heart of the DC, the green strip boasts an area for presidential inaugurations, holiday festivals and special events. Walk the row and swing by some of the Nation's greatest treasures or sit and relax in the parkland's grass between the Washington Monument and Capitol Building, a perfect place for a summer picnic or watch to the many sporting events in action.
