In a few words: What a great city! We have to see so much more of this city, so I'm sure that we come back here someday!!!
It was a really hot day!! We only saw the most famous buildings and memorials on the National Mall.
Some information about it from Wikipedia:
The National Sylvan Theater, southeast of the Washington Monument, is also part of the Mall, although it is not numbered in the image. As popularly understood, the National Mall also includes the following areas west of the Washington Monument: the Lincoln Memorial and Reflecting Pool, the National World War II Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
The Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial, scheduled for completion in 2009, will be located on a 4 acre (16,000 m²) site that borders the Tidal Basin and within the sightline of the Jefferson and Lincoln memorials.
The National Museum of African American History and Culture will be located at the southwest corner of Constitution Avenue and 14th Street, NW, adjacent to the National Museum of American History.
The washington monument was closed when we got there, What a pity! I love to see the view someday, well maybe next time.
We were so tired when we got home to our hotel late in the evening but it was a great day!
