National Mall

The National Mall is America’s most visited national park, where the past, present and future come together. The monuments and memorials in this park honor American forefathers and heroes who paid the ultimate sacrifice in service to this country. Explore the swath of land nicknamed “America’s front yard.”

The National Mall is centrally located in Washington, DC, stretching over 2 miles from the Lincoln Memorial on the west end to the U.S. Capitol on the east end. We recommend you ride the Metro to the Smithsonian stop on the Orange, Blue and Silver lines since parking is limited along the Mall. If you’d prefer to bike, Capital Bikeshare has multiple docks located on or near the National Mall grounds. And once you’re on the Mall, you can take the DC Circulator National Mall route between the different sites.
