The National Mall and Memorial Parks

This sprawling downtown area is home to most of the monuments people associate with America’s capital (Washington Monument, Maya Lin’s Vietnam Veterans Memorial), but it’s also the home of the National Book Festival in September, the Cherry Blossom Festival in late March/early April and endless other activities throughout the year. D.C. residents may grumble about the crowds, but if you’re in town and don’t at least walk by, it’s as if you were never here.
